We handed him our registrations from Virginia (no stickers hence the reason for the stop). He was really nice about it. We all chatted for a bit since we were the only ones out on the water. He said if my son was stopped in Virginia, they will just ask for his boater's safety certificate - which complies with the requirements there. That they typically don't do searches on vessels registered out of state. He just has to be the proper age and after recognizing my husband he knew which boy we were talking about. He said he thought with his size, he was already 16. He admitted that he wouldn't have even bothered to stop us if it wasn't for the obvious missing stickers. Typically they don't bother stopping jet skies unless you are acting like an idiot on it.
One day I didnt have stickers on my john boat. Me and a friend's husband was out crabbing. I had just gotten a brand new trot line laid down with more feet added! I was so excited! After laying the new line down. We troll around to let crabs get on the bait, and then all of sudden the linkage got messed up in my motor. We could only go in reverse
We were having to then run the trot line in reverse, the crabs where hoping off hearing the motor and then sure enough... here comes DNR... nobody runs the trot line backwards.
We were the "obvious idiots "out there that day and I got a fine.
