Re: Registration Numbers on the Hull?

Ossining. Home of SingSing Correctional Facility, or whatever they call it these days. I wouldn't have thought they had any jurisdiction on the Haverstraw (other) side of the Hudson.

But either way, they must have been bored. NYS law says a vessel does not need NYS registration AT ALL unless it has been in the navigable waters of NYS for more than 90 days. Have it hauled overnight once every 89 days and you can keep it here forever, without registering the boat.

"I'm bored, let's go see if THAT BOAT has any donuts on board!"

Best bumper sticker I ever did see belongs to someone who must have a set of brass balls. It said "BAD COP! NO DONUT!"

Whatever happened to "probable cause" ? I say, if they can't quote the Bill of Rights, they can't be Peace Officers. And they get one try to get it right, no retakes on that exam.

I'm really wondering if President Roberts [sic] clever little rewrite of the Constitution last Friday isn't going to put Obama out of office this fall...
