Often, when one state has a good idea and it has been implemented for awhile, other states follow suit. NH has had the 150' boat to boat rule for many years. As far as I know, it doesn't exist in...

Low birth rates

Birth rates were dropping long before any pandemic effect. Maybe we'll see a bump in the numbers after everybody stayed home in 2020? Or did they all just adopt pets? That number was way up.

It's been 10% for a long time. There are occasions where it might go higher if it is a very low value boat. On larger boats (more $$) the brokers may negotiate a little when there is actually an...
