Canadians: Station License or not?

This is a question for Canadians, perhaps more specifically Great Lakes Canadians. Are all Y'all registering for station licenses to travel to the US? I know it's the rule, but I am quite hesitant to do so. I need another annually recurring fee like I need a hole in the head, and the idea of using a radio license call sign in front of my boat name each and every radio call has no appeal.

Are those of you who travel to the US getting station licences? Are they actually actively enforcing the rule?

Thanks in advance.
