I know this isnt the proper place for this Question but I thought it would get the most answers since there are so many Sportcraft owners in lake Erie. My question is what is the current situation with needing to document sportcrafts for charter use and if anybody has done this recently with a boat that was built prior to say 2003 since the original company went under and all paperwork was lost and the ability to prove a U.S. build is not available.
Has anybody gone with the $500 waiver the coast guard has? Is it even a issue anymore?
