License/Registration for Paddling WV?

For much of the paddling in PA, either a registration or launch permit is required. Anyone from WV know what is needed in West Virginia?

Boats that are not powered by a motor bigger than 17lb (I think) thrust do not require registration in WV. None of my paddlecraft are registered except for a canoe I use a 3hp motor on. There are no lauch permits required for any location I know of. Of course there may be some, I just have never needed one. You can check the WV DMV site and WVparks for more information.

We don need no steenkin registration!!!

Which of course means that I have to buy launch permits for the paddling I do in PA.
