(1) More than sixty-five feet in length and more than forty years old; and
(2) Either:
(a) Is registered or required to be registered under chapter 88.02 RCW; or

The department may pursue secondary liability if the prior owner(s) did not provide the department copies of a vessel inspection disclosure report, as specified in WAC 332-30-123, before transferring ownership of the vessel.
