Re: Many cruisers with documented vessels can not enter FL legally.
This has been an issue for years. It seems Florida is the only state that does not honor documented vessels and in fact, makes an effort to harass documented vessels who have no state sticker. My boat is 45 years old. I registered in NY for the first time last year to avoid the bureaucratic hassle. It's really no big deal, just one more piece of paperwork to keep track of...and one more infringement on freedom...chip, chip, chip. You would think l.e. had more important things to do.
