Hi all, I know I asked this question before but I forgot which post I added my question to. So I am asking again because I forget, too many strokes.  I did look for that post, but still can not find my own question.

If you add a Electric Trolling motor to a Bucks 9' platoon, do you need to get it register in the state of California to use in F/W or S/W? [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Thanks for your information!

Short answer...... YES

                         General Guidelines
California law requires all vessels to be registered and numbered except:
■ Boats propelled manually
■ Boats eight feet or less in length propelled solely by sail
■ Certain vessels owned by public agencies
■ Vessels documented by the Coast Guard
■ Foreign vessels
■ Ship’s lifeboats used solely for lifesaving purposes
■ Vessels having valid registration in the state of principal use and not
remaining in California over 90 consecutive days
■ Sailboards
These guidelines include vessels that are moored, whether or not they are used


What Not to Register
Any vessel propelled by oars or paddles alone.
Non-motorized sailboats that are 8 feet in length.
Surfboards or sailboards.
A ship's lifeboat (does not include dinghies).
Vessels currently registered in another state (if used primarily outside California).
Vessels brought into California for racing.

I wonder if these regs predate the popularity of float tubes. Meaning, did they even have float tubes in mind?

Sail boards are covered so it is not too old, and they are pretty clear about motors.
