Idaho State Seal My Idaho visitors might be interested to know that you will likely be required soon to register your canoe or kayak.

A little quote from the article that I thought was interesting:

Idaho Gov. Butch Otter says nonmotorized boat users enjoy some of the same facilities that are supported through motor boat registration fees.

Otter says nonmotorized boaters also incur costs to the state through search-and-rescue services. Idaho had 45 boating-related fatalities from 2002 to 2007.

Nearly half of those fatalities involved nonmotorized boating.

The article didn't say when you might need to start paying your fair share of rescue fees.
