If the Michigan Waterways Commission has their way, all self-propelled paddlers will have to register all rigid-hulled kayaks and canoes at a rate not to exceed $10.00/yr. This includes paddle boards 8 feet in length and above at a rate not to exceed $10.00/yr. Appears registration would also require proof of purchase, proving sales tax paid, or repaying sales tax may be required at time of registration.
The Commission is also recommending a separate surcharge (sticker) for invasive species control for all vessels.
