I wouldn't let their delay hold you back, as long as you have a receipt for the purchase. It's the DMV's fault you can't get everything done sooner. I ran my boat for months last summer before being able to get through to the DMV... Every time I went it was a 4-5 hour wait or they straight up turned me away because there was so many waiting already. I wasn't going to let them force me to keep my new boat out of the water because they can't get their $hit together.I had a major delay too, damn dmv is only taking appointments. I got a appointment for the 23rd. I did get 2 new batteries, uscg safety gear, wiring connectors, switch panel, wires, liquid tape and shrinktube, bilge pump, vhf radio.
Good info on the ramps, seasonal pass sounds good. Launch anytime ya want I assume w/ seasonal ramp pass. I used to be at matts landing where the green heads were pretty bad, long pants and shirts is the best I found. Others used some kind of purple childrens gell bug spray, they even sold it at there b/t shop.
