    Thumbs up Florida Antique Vessel Registration

    Just learned that my 68 Starcraft qualifies as an antique vessel, $4.75 to register her!

    Has anyone else done this or know the procedure?

    Here's something I want to see about. No, mine is not that old but I'd like to know what the "antique" age is and all that.
    Nope, no pictures of my kids. But, want to see a picture of my boat?

    I saw it had to be 30 plus years, with an original era power plant & non commercial..

    Well, I'm past that but the boat isn't. I've got a year and a half 'till she's an antique. I suppose an '88 motor on an '81 boat is the "original era power plant?"
