If the person named follows one of the above-mentioned procedures, he or she is presumed to have recognized the non-criminal offence and to have waived the right to be heard on the question of the commission of the offence. This confession may not be used as evidence in any other proceedings. If a person named for an offence in paragraph 327.395 may present a boat security card issued to that person and valid at the time of the summons, the Registrar may dismiss the matter and collect a termination fee of up to $10, the officer of which must pay $2.50 to the Consolidated Revenue Fund for deposit in the General Income Fund.

Marine Plant Life Kelp forests support a lush underwater community of fish, invertebrate sea urchins and otters. The roof of the algae found near the coast covers the surface of the water and sometimes extends by thousands of feet to the bottom of the seabed. In the warm months, this algae can grow up to one foot a day. Seagenas are nursery areas normally found in protected waters called estuaries where fresh and salt water meet. Most of the world`s fish started in the river`s estuaries and in the associated sea grass habitat. Algae are very sensitive and their destruction can lead to deterioration of the entire marine cycle. As a responsible PWC operator, stay away from these two ecologically sensitive areas. The district share of the vessel registration tax is deducted only from pleasure craft. And if you`re 18 or younger, you`re in luck – in Florida, it`s illegal to rent, rent, or rent a personal boat to people under the age of 18.
