Re: VHF Protocol
Again, how many people here, have boats that do not have state assigned numbers?
Then too, the shear numbers of boats, by size, would likely result in there being a thousand boats under 30-feet for every ten that are over.
The hair involved in the documented boat registrations are legendary. Sales and or excise tax when selling, being the principal nightmare.
But it is still done, but almost always on ocean going vessels
