Registering homemade vessel in Florida

Post by barney »

Has anyone registered a jet jon as a homemade vessel in Florida?

New guy here in Florida, been lurking a while reading jet jon builds and I have decided I'd like to build one myself, but it may be more difficult to register here than other states. I would prefer to modify an existing hull rather than build from raw materials, but Florida wants receipts for the materials and they're wording would seem to disqualify conversions.

"In no event shall a rebuilt or reconstructed vessel be construed to be a homemade vessel."(From HSMV 87002)

If anyone's been through the process in Florida, I'd like to hear your experience.
Thanks
