I see Washington and Idaho impounded a boat from Lake Mead for carrying the invasive mussel so clean your boat and trailer because it sounds like they will be doing inspections.

That is good information to know. Good thing i have only been going to the same lake right now but when i move to a differnt lake i always wash down the boat.

nice find.
I, personally, do not have an issue paying the $10 if it keeps them suckers out of here.
lots are bitching about it, but it's a 12pk of beer...

sandm,

Actually, I bought the $5 non-motorized sticker and they are all the same. For one week in Idaho, I thought that was reseasonable.

Im curious it talks about boat inspections in Idaho. Im going to be towing Fierah threw Idaho to Utah later this summer. Do i have to get one of these stickers too? Or it it only needed to put the boat in the water?

I wipe the boat down after every trip in the water as soon as she comes out and look under the hull to make sure i dont see anything. Is this enough or do i need to be hosing it down? I dont always see hoses at the dock areas. I generally wash and wax at home every few weeks to check for any scratches and or other issues.
