Does a trolling motor have to be registered?
How about in Texas?

Motors are not registered, boats are. In most states, any boat with a motor must be registered. Occassionally however, in some places an electric trolling motor boat only need not be registered if it is smaller than a specific saize.

In New York any motor powered boat needs to be registered. Electric or gas.

Yes. Effective January 1, 1994, all motorboats and all outboard motors must be titled. Also sailboats 14 feet and over in length must be titled.

It depends on where you live and what sort of waters you want to use it on. Typically, the state where you live makes the rules.

Except in terms of a warranty, no.
