PA Launch Permit Location

I had to purchase a launch permit for my new kayak for using in State Park and PF&BC Lakes.

I received 2 stickers. These are mounted on the front part of the kayak? No real explanation in the envelope with the stickers.

Excuse my ignorance, I'm new at this.

The main thing is that the permits can be seen while the kayak is in the water. Other than that it can be front or back. Personally, I put mine on either side near the front.

Re: PA Launch Permit Location

midship under the gunwale is the way it is described in the literature I rec'd with the new 16/17 stickers from the PFBC. I ordered mine on line they were mailed to me from the PFBC.

When I bought them from a dealer they came without specification as to mounting.

So I placed them on port and starboard sides one on the bow port side one on the stern starboard. Never got checked or questioned.

The new ones I placed on opposite sides in the center of the kayak

Re: PA Launch Permit Location

nice ride - behind the seat for me too..

p.s.
TIP

If you fish at night - you need a single WHITE LIGHT that is visible 360deg...

I put to use some "redneck engineering" :
I use a solar polared landscape light (Walmart - $3.50).
No Batteries required,, KISS principle...

Re: PA Launch Permit Location

That applies if your anchored at night. If not, you at least need a hand held white light/lantern to prevent a collision.
