In 2013, there were 43,736 vessels registered in Lee County. That does not include canoes, kayaks and other vessels not required to be registered. In addition, thousands of visitors and seasonal residents bring their boats that were registered elsewhere to enjoy part of the year in our local waters. All those boaters must know what a fabulous place Lee County is to go boating! But everyone must do their part to boat safely and responsibly.
