Register kayak?

I have a trolling motor mounted on my hobie and would like to know if I needed to register my kayak along with a CCF# in order to use it. I've used it for 2 years now without any issues but recently took it out to a lake and a fellow kayaker came by and looked at my kayak asking for a CF#. I did some searching online and it says any motorized watercraft needs to be registered. Just wanted to double check with you guys here before doing so.

Thanks in advance

Yes if you have any kind of motor or sail you should register it.

You do legally need it but odd of someone caring is slim. It’s cheap like $32 for two years so you may as well get one. If you have AAA u can do it there.

CF numbers...?

Technically you need to have CF numbers on any motorized vessel...
If you visit Redondo's King Harbor and motor or fish around the harbor you will eventually be stopped and checked by the Harbor Patrol if they notice you have a motorized vessel without CF Numbers...
If you just motor directly from the ramp out into the open ocean they MAY NOT notice you.
I have been stopped and checked for a license and PFD while trolling in the harbor and the the Patrol officers commented that having numbers was the proper way to operate.
It's really pretty cheap and easy to do at AAA as Raskal commented... and it's good insurance on being able to stay on the water and not ruin a day just because a Harbor or Lake Patrol guy decided to stick to the rules...

Applies to the Bixpy Jet as well?

I am guessing this applies to the Bixpy Jet as well? I was told that if it is under 1HP then I don't need to register. I guess I should go get it register at AAA to be on the safe side. Especially if it is only $32 for two years.

Bixpy

The Bixpy on a kayak is included as a motorized vessel...
You can save $10 a year on the tags if you do not get the quaga muscle sticker...

Manufacturer's Certificate?

I went to AAA today with my sales receipt from OEX Sunset. They said I need the Mfg Certificate with the Hull #? Anyone know what this is about? I don't remember receiving one.

Hull number was scratched on the back of my Outback.
Not sure about the other document, since I bought it used.

You have to get the Mfg. Certificate from Hobie directly. OEX should be able to contact them for you and get it sent to them or you.

Ocean? No. Nobody will care

Lakes? Yes. Those wardens and rangers have nothing better to do and if you catch one on an off day expect everything to be checked.
