    Boat Wash Inspection Stations. A good article that spells out the problem with the wording of the stations. I think that education is key and would like to convey an idea. Most watercraft that transmits invasives requires government registration of the watercraft and also the tow vehicle and trailer. Educational material about the boat wash inspections could be included in the registration process. There could be a checkbox on the registration application for the registrant to indicate that they have read the educational material, are aware of the necessity of boat washing and agree to comply with boatwashing

    Since the sign reads “Boat Inspection”, I think many boat haulers think it means something akin to a “Car Inspection”. Perhaps “Boat Decontamination” or “Boat Decomantination of Invasive Plants” would be better.
