Course Outline

Requirements for vessel registration vary from state to state. In Texas, you must have a Texas Certificate of Number (registration card) and validation decals to operate your vessel legally on public waters. The only exceptions are:

  • A sailboat under 14 feet in length
  • Non-motorized vessels such as canoes, kayaks, rowboats, and rubber rafts
  • Vessels registered in other states and using Texas waters for 90 consecutive days or less
