    12' boat. 3HP motor. Impounded pond. Do I need to register boat and all that jazz?

    You’ll prolly be fine, but I’ve been ticketed in a private marsh, that is sorta impounded with the exception of a few breaks in the levee, for no running lights on boat. Even though no one is supposed to be on the property it’s possible They could illegally and cause an accident... so if you’re entirely impounded you prolly are fine.

    If you are on private property including water over private property you are not subject to laws regulating the operation of boats on public waterways.
