Default Smog Restrictions CA - AZ

Anyone no whats up with smog restrictions for 2011 and 2012 new hulls in California, and or AZ.

I heard that 2011 hulls over 500hp no smog and then all boats in 2012.

Anyone no specifics on this, if i bought a new hull in 2012 and put a used engine(+500hp) in it will i face problems registering the boat with proper smog requirments?

Not sure, but as I remember the law pertained to manufacture certification of engine packages, so registration should not be a problem when using an older engine package.

the original version of the law (not sure if it passed) was that all new boats sold had to meet emissions. any older boat either newly registered in CA or resold in CA would have to be brought up the current emissions standard. if you have an older boat registered in CA and keep it registered then you did not have to do anything but to sell the boat you had to first bring it to standard or sell it out of state. not sure how it all ended up though.

Well if THAT passed.......that would put a nail in the coffin for used boat sales.

there was alot of opposition from dealers, etc for that reason. as I said I dont know how it ended up. they were working on lots of bill like it. one would not allow any vehicle or vessel into the shipping ports that did not meet 2008 standards. that meant that 80% of the trucks and nearly all small trucking companies would either have to buy new trucks or lose enough business to have to shut down but also no ships that didnt meet the standards would have not been allowed in. basically they would have sent all the freight to mexico or oregon. tree huggers have way too much influence on way too stupid of politicos out there.

I believe that if the boat is newly registered in 2012 then the motors will have to meet and have EPA certifications. I dont live in CA but that was my understanding when talking with some engine builders that sell in that market.

I have been trying to read the code. The engine I have was produced prior to 2008 . This may make a difference I do not know. But if I buy the vessel with no power can I register it that way and then put in power. I could register out of state I guess the majority of use is in az, do they have similar laws? What's up with the EPA laws coming across all states? Anyone have a clear awnser on this because I can not find one?

The smog laws basically can't be retroactive. Used boats won't be affected by the new smog laws.
