Hey guys. I was was wondering exactly what papers I need to have on board my montuak if I at stopped for inspection? I live in Mass, not sure that really makes a difference though. Thanks.

Toilet paper !!! Ya-neva-know !!!
seriously, Here in Ma. all you need is your boat registration and they might ask for your I.D., your Mass drivers license should do.

FLA= Boat registration and drivers License. If you have been boarded before and passed inspection, e.g., with the Coast Gaurd, then keep the paperwork. I have waved it at them when they anticiipate boarding my boat and they will generally back off, if you indicate the inspection was within the last 6 months. When I see them coming I grab the paper out of the leaning post, grab the VHF and start talking to them. Has saved alot of time over the last several years. Works for me. David

In Washington State the one and only paper you are obliged to have on board is the state vessel registration certificate.
