: OK...I see all these beautiful pics of your wooden kayaks and very
: very few with any kind of registration markings. I just picked
: up new reg. today in MN and have to put 2 big blue stickers on
: mine. One each side. Uggg. Is it just MN or you guys finding
: loopholes?

I got my HIN (Hull identification Number) through the registration process in Illinois. The stickers are required, and I put them on. It is still a good looking boat.

If I wanted a museum piece I wouldn't register it, and it would never get wet. I wanted a boat to paddle, and the stickers don't slow me down any more than license plates slow down my car.
