A little mis-leading. All ' applicable" NYS vessels need to be registered.

Out of state vessels operating in NY waters also need a valid registration from another state. They are allowed to operate in NYS waters for 90 days with their out of state registration. There's no pass on registration that I can see.

In Jon's sounds like the vessel wasn't registered yet in Ohio..nor was the documentation process completed. It had a maryland registered dinghy..(old?) and an outdated hailing port..probably expired documentation...

Jon offers no details on how it got resolved. But, It sounds like he was given some professional courtesy.
