can anyone tell me what laws, if any there are with launching small zodiac boats in saltwater, specifically around galveston etc... and on beaches in the surf? I have been looking into a zodiac boat to take me out past the sandbars in the surf and maybe even get me around these shallow marshes where everyone is catching all these redfish!

I have a couple of questions.

1. I know nothing about this so would this even be a good idea? (I do not want kayak) Safety wise and feasibility, would this be recommended?
2. what are the laws regarding registration on these, if any? I am thinking no bigger than 11ft with 5hp motor.
3. Can these be launched in the surf, legally and physically easy?
4. where would be the best places to take something like this, in search of redfish/trout?

If you would not recommend this, would would be a better option?
