    They might have been checking for stolen boats, drivers licenses, registration papers, etc. Years ago they did that at Homestead Bayfront on the road into the park and were making arrests.

    The items you should have:

    Drivers License
    Proof of vehicle insurance
    Vehicle registration
    Boat registration
    Trailer registration

    Plus a concealed weapon permit if you are carrying on your person.
    and make sure you have your boat secured properly to the trailer with transom straps etc.
