    ladies and gentlemen,

    in order to fish federal waters with a motor on a pontoon raft, even if it is under 10', the raft needs to be registered with the state like a regular boat.  does anyone have a list of washington state "federal waters" handy?  my assumption is that it is more than salt water.  no state of washington agency has been able to answer this question.

    cheers

    Here is a link that describes the possible answer, 3 miles offshore, and some of the history. Pick a good weather window before heading out! Don't leave without a camera either. https://www.news4jax.com/weather/environment/difference-between-federal-and-state-waters

    i found that the army corps of engineers and coast guard have a 14-page listing of federal waters for washington.  found under washington state navigable waters.
