I can't seem to find the self decontamination certificate they speak of. I'm guessing you need one for each boat your transporting. Utah loves to stop and check me out...and I'm an old grey haired guy. I go on these High School trips to Deso and usually haul all the boats and gear. I've had them stop me and check the coolers for out of state beer......but we don't take things like that with us.
Last year I had three gear boats, three paddle boats, three ducks and a kayak.....plus a motor. Should be about the same load this year. Seven of the boats are not mine. Now I'm guessing I need a certificate for each boat and proof of who owns what. If I get to the put in and don't have the right paperwork from the border, do we get to launch? This is getting complicated fast.....
Rec.gov better be able to give instructions on how this is going to work when you get your permit.....or there are going to be a lot of pissed off people at the put in. Good thing it's Winter and we have time to figure this out before we head to Utah.
From power boating experience, (mainly Utah and Colorado) when you pull your boat out of the water, they put a tag on a cable and attach it to the front of the boat and trailer. They attach it in a way that they can tell if the boat has been off the trailer. They also give you a pink slip that you keep with the boat and give it to the next inspector at the next lake you visit. Pretty cut and dry for single boats on trailers. When I left Pueblo Res. and headed for Powell, I had Pueblo decon me so we wouldn't have a problem launching. When we left Powell, they didn't have their decon station open and the ranger noted that on our pink slip, which means at the next lake we go to, we will have to have it deconed before we launch. No big deal....it's free here in Colorado.
You just need to plan accordingly.
