Requirements for vessel registration vary from state to state. In Florida, you must have a Florida Certificate of Registration and validation decal to operate a vessel legally on public waters in Florida. The only exceptions are: non-motorized vessels less than 16 feet in length; non-motorized canoes, kayaks, racing shells, or rowing sculls of any length; and vessels used exclusively in private lakes and ponds.
