Registration will have an effect on tourism because it will discourage out of state paddlers with their own boats. Registration will create economic hardship for outfitters and livery operations, most of whom are small businesses which could result in closures, and/or higher prices for tourists and well as residents. Why promote the great nature tourism of Florida if no one can see it because there is no place to rent a canoe, kayak, or sailboat?
