May I ask if you have ever had success with a particular ferry line?
Thank you Sail Monkey.
Iíve been on several ferryís with pure sailing dinghies, no problems.
The only time Iíve tried with powered boats has been on the ferry system operated by the US state of Texas
. Motorboats with outboards and factory installed fuel tanks
provided no problem. Not even a second glimpse.
Smaller motorboats with a portable fuel can attached to the outboard are not specifically prohibited, only the portable fuel container. Iíve even tried to cross with new completely empty 20l fuel cans....no go.
