This is what I was told we could do last year, but then they went and strung cables across the ramps so we couldn't back in even if we were tagged?

If I remember correctly, some of the boat dealers around the area
were trained to do inspections. I don't know if they ended up being
able to actually inspect boats and tag them.

Good info guys. Will call around. Wish you could get it done at 24 hour gas stations, even if for a small fee (say $20 for the year, anytime at approved locations...)

There you go, Rob. Propose making inspections a private business deal, then the state couldn't complain about not having enough people to man all the lakes.

The military does it. They hire private security companies to man the gates now. Don't see how that wouldn't work with boat inspections... ???

Hmmm...that makes me think of another question. Is the DOW and stuff related to city and state parks part of the political system?

Asking because I want to know if we, as citizens can run for office positions, and/or propose law changes?

Can we vote for privatized boat inspections? I think it would work out great, personally.

Dammit Kenny, leave the political bs to the off topic section and out of my thread. :D

Besides. I wouldn't vote for you anyway. :D :D

But seriously, theres gotta be an easier way for them to go about it. Obviously more and more people are boating every year, and they should be open to suggestions.

To answer the questions, YES the DOW main office at 58th & I-25 is open for boat inspection from 10am to 6pm.

Also the CDOW and state parks are different organizations, that have separate but very similiar rules and regs regarding inspections, tags, e.t.c As is city controlled lakes. Different rules, but also many similair rules.
