Kayak owners may obtain their free identification sticker at this year’s Oyster Fest USCG Auxiliary’s display booth on West End Avenue. They will also have free kayaking and boating safety materials on hand for distributing to all recreational boaters.
Morgan McCurdy of the Waterfront Center is shown in the accompanying photo pointing to a kayak identification sticker provided by USCG Auxiliary in Oyster Bay. The 3x6 waterproof stickers provide space for the owners of the kayak to write their name and two telephone contact numbers. Each year thousands of empty floating kayaks are found floating inshore and offshore waters. In that kayaks are not required to be registered in the State of New York and have no registration numbers, there is presently no way for authorities to identify and contact the owner of the craft.
