Register license in Michigan

In Michigan boat registration and licensing is handled by the Secretary of State (SOS) offices. You will need to go into the office (make an appointment or walk in), since it is not possible to do this online at this time. To get a Title and Hull Identification Number (HIN) you will need to sign an ...

Registering a Home Built Boat by State / Country

Having researched and fielded this question a few times for Michigan boat builders, I thought it may be a good idea to have a thread on how to register and license your new home built boat in your state or country. Please let me know if this is already out there, but I search around for a bit and di...

Re: Squirt Boat Cover

Quick follow up... The new boat cover is working out great. It is easy to put on and take off. It has been through a couple of heavy thunder storms and has not moved an inch, where lawn furniture was getting tossed around.

Re: What should I have on board a small power boat?

+1 on the DNR and USCG regulations. For what it is worth, Harbor Freight sells some small water tight box (Apache brand) that are nice for storing supplies on a boat. The smallest is about $10 with a coupon and they go up from there in size and price. I have a basic set of tools (plyers, screwdriver...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Hi Carl, Check out bestboatwire.com , they have a wire gauge calculator. You just need the length of the run and the amps. It will tell you the voltage drop for different gauge wire. They also have good prices on complete cables. I could not buy the wire, terminals, etc... for what they delivered a ...
