Just goes to show how confused the authorities are!!
We were pulled over ($90 fine) for creating a wake with our RIB
at about 4-5kt in Ft. Lauderdale. It just so happened that the biggest wake was the vessel traveling in the opposite direction that caused a bow wave to come over the front of our RIB!
Anyway the point is that Florida's best & finest actually gave us sh!t for having our dinghy
registered (in RI). They actually said that a "tender" does not require registration in Florida
. Of course they could well be totally wrong, as they were with our ticket!!
