I'm interested in getting a kayak with a Minn Kota trolling motor setup. I'd like to know if the kayak has to be registered with NYS or not.

Does my boat require a registration?
The law requires you to register any boat that is motor-driven and is operated on public waterways in NYS. The boat requires a registration even if the motor is not the primary source of propulsion. If you operate the boat in NYS, you must register the boat with the DMV. After you register your boat, you receive a registration certificate that indicates the registration number assigned to your boat and a set of registration stickers.

i don't think you'll be bothered unless your doing something your not suppose to be doing.
