462A.21  Fees.

The annual fee for the inspection of vessels operated for hire shall be based upon the passenger-carrying capacity, including crew, for which such vessel is registered.

Such fee shall be computed at the rate of fifty cents per person capacity, except rowboats, but shall be not less than one dollar and shall not exceed the maximum of twenty dollars. The fee for inspecting rowboats shall be one dollar per boat.

The annual fee for pilot's license is one dollar.

The annual fee for engineer's license is two dollars.

The provisions of this section shall be applicable to all vessels which are rented to the public for hire, including vessels furnished with leased cottages. If such vessels are found to be in satisfactory condition, the inspecting officer shall attach thereto a small plate or inspection seal, indicating the date of inspection and the passenger-carrying capacity. The owner of such vessel shall not offer it for hire or allow it to be so used until such inspection has been made and the vessel found to be in satisfactory condition.

There shall be no fee charged for the inspection of private vessels not used for hire.

The inspecting officer shall collect all inspection fees and forward them to the commission.

All fees collected shall be forwarded by the commission to the treasurer of the state, who shall place such money in a conservation fund. The money so collected shall be appropriated by the legislature to the commission solely for the administration and enforcement of navigation laws and water safety.
