    im not sure but a neighbor kid has a yellow inflatable boat and he had to get tags for it, they were only $12.50 i think for the year but would be more if he puts a motor on it, including a trolling motor he was told, hope this helps you

RIGHT:wink::smile2::smile2:

    If I wanted to put a 7' vinyl on the water, I would put it inside of a 20' fiberglass.:smile2:
