    If you have a boat that is Flaged in a different country the only officials that can board without permission are the coast gaurd. A family member has a Hattaras that is reg in the BVI and when the boat is in FL the fish and game and the local water patrol have no durisdiction.

    I still have not done it yet, but have not also had boat out yet due to some work on it in shop still..
    If I remember correctly my documentation paperwork had a bold line that said something to the effect of "it is a violation of federal law to register a documented vessel".

    If the cover wasn't on the boat I would go find it....

    If a boat is in a state for X number of days per year it is supposed to get a state sticker you dont have to put letters and numbers just the state sticker if it is documented.
    This is true in OH KY and FL I know at least per state regs.

    In Texas if you are Coast Guard Documented you do not have to display the Tx registration numbers, but you do have to be registered and display the state sticker. This keeps you from being stopped for not having the numbers. You do have to display your CG numbers inside the boat per their regs. You can be boarded by anyone.
