I don't know about other states, but Pennsylvania has rules covering everything you mentioned, and many more, including licenses & Permits, safety jackets & flotation cushions, classes attended before getting permits, and booze on the water.

IDK PA had regulations for us to jump in the boat and drive it, safety stuff yes but not for operating it.

My flats boat has a 90 on it but it's CF and doesn't weigh anything. You can guess it's name

My son's boat has 2 600hp jet drives. He can fly offshore. Mine sips gas. His sucks it.
I love fishing.

The boat Bear Jr uses for his serious fishing has an Evinrude "60/40" on it.
No part of the motor sticks below the bottom of the boat.
