Re: A fine for a not registered 10ft dinghy? FL-US

You could register them in the US. You couldn't document them, but state registration doesn't care about your home address.

Re: Sea Tow: Only for milquetoasts?

Re: Garmin just purchased ActiveCaptain

I agree. Active Captain is far superior to any other sites. Waterway Guide and Cruisers Net are great for the very small part of the world they cover.

Re: Garmin just purchased ActiveCaptain

Let's temper our reaction. Too much "the sky is falling." As you said, the data is freely available and the only thing we know at this time is the AC interface with Polar Navy is going to end. Does...

Re: Should there be mandatory liability insurance for boats?

I'd suggest you find a good marine insurance broker. Since you're US and your boat is US, I'd start with one in South Florida. They'll be able to go through the various carriers and advise you on how...
