Well I have been coming to the Jacksonville area for a few years with my kayak ( travel from North Alabama ). The combination of roundtrip long drives and lots of paddling makes for a worn out person. So I'm adding a 12ft skiff with a 8hp to my fleet to hopefully cover more water without being worn out when returning.

I want to obey the FL laws, but So far all I can find as requirements are....
1. PFD
2. Whistle
3. Lights, if out in dark, but no plans for night fishing
4. I will get a fire extinguisher, but not sure its a requirement due to the length

Not sure about the following for either law or common sense.
- any special permits or documentation for out of state visitors
- any special warning devices
- Paddle seems to be common sense but not sure how much I could paddle back, but I guess slow is better that NO

All my other kayak gear will carry over.

Just wanting to make sure I got my duck in a row, don't want to be that idiot on the water ya know. ...... I value the advice and mistakes from others, its cheaper that way!

You need a throwable floatation also.

you don't need a fire extinguisher on a 12ft boat unless you have an enclosed tank somewhere under a deck. a throwable, a pfd, whistle and lights in the dark is all you need. Not counting a valid registration and a fishing license.
