Oregon has figured out another way to tax us with a new scheme to replace AIS permit for some non-motorized small water craft. The Watercraft Access Permit is required for kayaks 10ft and over. I am wondering how watercraft will be measured to determine whether they are required to have a permit. Has anybody had their boats length measured by LEO's on the water or on the dock? Did they measured a on a flat line like if a flat board was laid on top of the boat from bow to stern or with the measuring tape following the profile of the top of the boat? Do they count any accessories attached to the boat? My cheap Pelican kayak is barely 10ft depending on how you hold the tape.

SECTION 5.Waterway access permit. (1) Except as provided in subsections (3) and (4)of this section, a person 14 years of age or older shall carry a waterway access permit while operating a nonmotorized boat that is at least 10 feet in length or a sailboat that is at least10 feet but less than 12 feet in length, in the manner provided by the State Marine Board by rule. The person shall present proof of a permit upon request by a peace officer.(2) A waterway access permit under this section is transferrable to any nonmotorized boat that is at least 10 feet in length or a sailboat that is at least 10 feet but less than 12 feet in length.



Effective January 1, 2020, Waterway Access Permits are required for boats 10 feet long and longer (based on he maximum length of the boat when measured along its longest axis).
