🎶 In the summertime, and the weather is fine! 🎶 

Boat launches are a public resource and very popular, especially in the summer months, but to get on it (legally) you need to pay a fee. The fees vary from county to county. Some municipalities charge for the use of boat launches, by providing a daily or annual boating permit to boaters. This blog post looks at new ways of handling boat launch permits.

Then

Traditionally, the manual process involves a guy, sock-money and the tag. 

One end was torn off and placed into the car window, the other into the box by the boat launch.

This means, 

  • PD needs to be paid to check licenses daily, and over weekends. 
  • A kiosk that needs to be maintained annually, which can be quite expensive. 
  • Lost revenue to those who don't pay, although they might want to. Not having the correct cash or a checkbook to write a check for the payment.
