I agree, that design is my favorite so far. That 18 in the back ground is pretty sweet.  :D

Any chance the DNR up there will accept a pool noodle on a rope as a throwable?  I know it won't have a USCG approved label, but when you rip open the nylon cover of the labeled throwable there's a damn noodle in there.  Well, a flat one, anyway.  I like to think of it as the long bars that lifeguards would have - Might just bring mine anyway.

Yeah we got a ticket for not having a throwable last year, least satisfying way to spend $130. Ever.

Ok ... so items on board.  Proper size USCG life vest per person, throwable, noise maker (horn & or whistle) ... what else.  I'm gonna have to go look it up. 

Scott, sorry about the ticket.  If it makes you feel any better, I was pulled over driving my wife's car with expired registration and arrested and thrown in jail for a dog at large charge ... picture of me and my dog attached.

Who patrols the Mississippi River? Minnesota or Wisconsin? or both? Maybe it depends on which side of the river the violation occurs.

In the "No Wake" down from Red Wing the only thing there in on the MN. side ... so guess it would be MN. DNR or Water patrol, could be Coast Gaurd ?
Up in St.Paul I have seen all three.

You also need a type B-1 fire extinguisher in MN if you have an enclosed engine or fuel tank, I don't know if you ended up putting the fuel under the front or not.

Hopefully this isn't too far off topic, but since the law enforcement issues came up - just a quick question related to the possible interpretation of regulations by some various officials that might stop us to check. I'm planning for the event and even though I don't really think we'll need it, I was thinking about bringing along some extra fuel in some type of portable fuel tank just as a backup measure - whether a "Jerry" type can or a portable marine tank. I haven't ruled out a semi-portable marine tank either since I like to always have a backup. And I'm still considering size between simply 3 gallons, 6 gallons, or even 12 - 14.

My question is...on our CVX-20, since it's an outboard, there is not a blower system and it has a rather large "trunk" size storage area that also contains the batteries - but it is fairly enclosed once the back seat panel is in place. On my GT-150, that fuel space wasn't blocked by the rear seat like the CVX-20 is, so it wasn't a problem. I'm not personally worried about it, but since this rear area doesn't really have any external vents besides where control cables go through - I'm wondering if certain law enforcement types might interpret this as an enclosed area where I could possibly get a fine for having any type of un-vented fuel container in there?

Thanks in advance for your help!   :)

Sorry can't answer your question ...
BUT ...
We have a motto ... No one left behind !
With more then 50 G/C out on the water your chances of being stranded are less then ZERO !
We have a phone list of active members that could help if you have problems which I could email you .. If you would like one.
Also at the debreifing Brian has a list of phone numbers and info sheet he hands out.

Few years back Jeff drove all the way to lake Pepin at midnight on only gas fumes in his boat to rescue a member !
Jim has logged more miles towing boats then he has regular boating.
Then the best part is they'll fix whats broken and get ya back on the water !

If it is an outboard, you have no problem.
The venting required is to ensure that any vapors can escape from an I/O compartment ... running engine = heat + fuel vapors = kaboom.  If your motor is outside the boat, you should be in great shape. 
If you're going to use a marine portable, there should be a vent on the main cap that you can seal, too, just to make sure you've got no vapors hanging out.

Thank you for your answers - I appreciate it!

I know you're a great group and we are the type of people who attempt to offer any help wherever we can as well.

It's just my silly need for backup systems - probably a consequence of being in the computer industry for ~32+ years. You'll laugh when you see us because I even have an engine mounted trolling motor - although that wasn't really put on as a backup system (just coincidence that it can be used for that as long as the battery holds out) but was rather because we sometimes like to sit out on the lakes we frequent and just float around and that little motor provides a little directional control without having to be anchored - especially handy when our favorite camping lake has their water ski shows and fireworks a couple of times a year.

Anyway, we haven't had this boat long enough (5th of July) to find out exactly how accurate the fuel gauge is yet, so I like to carry at least a small 2 or 3 gallons along extra just for piece of mind (even though in most places we could make it back on the trolling motor). I know that's sealed and shouldn't be a problem, but I can well imagine that the law enforcement is a little tougher on the "Mighty Miss" and probably just my own paranoia thinking that maybe one of them might say "batteries and fuel containers in a pretty well closed up compartment might be a recipe for a possible spark disaster". I know that's fairly far fetched - but I've actually been hassled for far less "imaginative" reasons in my younger days (good campfire stories).   ;)

Yes, I know - stop sweating the small stuff!   :)
