Re: Bucks Bags Southfork VIN # location
"It is bizarre that one would have to license one man pontoon boats. I love my Southfork to death, but it is a floating lawn chair like all other fly fishing pontoons. Soon we'll need to license our fly rods and flies as well. "
Jeez, you guys! Don't give these damn college educated idiots/politicians any further ideas. Indiana's worse than Illinois, because you have to re-register your craft every year, whereas only once every three years in Illinois. Plus, if you want to put it on any "Federal Park/Waters", then you must purchase another sticker, (renewable every year, of course), for an additional cost to the consumer.
I bought my float tube @ the Gander Mtn. store in Merrillville, In. & have had a lot of fun in my water bound lazy boy over the eight, or nine years that I've had it, but when I upgraded to a pontoon earlier this year, the used frame I bought from Riverman doesn't have any #'s stamped/printed anywhere, so I don't know how old it is, & I never got a receipt from him for it either, but I can make a dumb old receipt & have any(friend)body sign it. And all that I'm going to license is the frame because that is the part that holds the motor. (Which btw, is all the law requires, & will assist in reducing the amount of property tax that I'll wind up paying.) The tubes are replaceable items, just like the battery, or trolling motor, oars, etcetera.
