well, took a while, but here is the reply direct from the horse's mouth, so that we can end this debate once and for all...

here goes:

Mr. Gargani-

Your question...

Can you use another NYCDEP Public Assess Permit holders boat?

If you follow certain conditions. Yes.

You must be a NYCDEP Public Access Permit holder and carry it with you.
Display your mirror tag.
Have a copy of your friends valid boat permit.
Have a valid NYS fishing license.
Know the Rules and Regulations pertaining to boat permit restrictions/guidelines. You can obtain a copy from your local Land Management Office.
If you follow these conditions you can indeed enjoy borrowing your friends boat. Have a great time fishing on the reservoirs. If we can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact this office. Thanks

now , my only question here is, now that we have the new boat "tag", do we still have a permit? didn't they undo the blue card that we used to carry??????
