So yes finally I was able to meet the good folks at the DNR. A friend of mine has a skiboat that had a missing letter from the registration on one side. The port side contained the letters for the state however the starboard side was missing (fell off or something, I remember him placing them on both sides). Upon contact they pulled up next to us and introduced themselves to us. They notified us of the infraction. Now I am pretty interesterd to hear in from any DNR members opinions of this stop. They tell him he needs to get the letter replaced and all. I wasnt sure if the law stated the registration had to be on both sides of the vessel. I am researching that now. After that they decide to make sure we had life jackets, fire extinguisher, and all the usual requirements of boat safety. Then they ask "were you all going?" HMMMMMM I was about to respond, well sir none of your buisiness really, but thanks for asking!! But not my boat, so I remained silent for a bit. He kind of looked at me when asking and I just politely responded, "were just out enjoying the day". He then said he was just wondering if we were lost as we had a map out and he thought we were lost. I thanked him for his help and said, nope we have a map so we DONT get lost! They held us for a few more minutes and kept looking around for booze and whatever else might give them a reason to board and get nosy. Of course no booze on board and I did NOT have my firearm. At this point they had no reason to hold us any longer and I asked if there was anything else they needed or could we go on enjoying a beautiful day on the lake. They thanked us for the time and were polite. DNR fishing for something, probably. Did we deserve to be pulled over for something like that, I am not sure. I have to check on the laws in GA regarding registration display. But other than that they were ok. Does anybody know off the bat if the registration must be displayed on both sides?
