I would like to know what the pro's and cons are for registering a lake use boat with Coast Guard? I have been told that there is a one time fee of approx. $436 versus a yearly fee for registration in AZ $292. There are no numbers or decals on your boat with Cost Guard but you need to have a name painted on the back.
I am sure there are specific reasons why this is not good for lake use boats but would like to know what they are and get input.......thanks
