Outdoor recreation can play a vital role in protecting our natural resources. When you register your boat, you do your part in sustaining resources that promote safe and responsible use of our nation's waters. Your registration dollars also help pay for marinas, boat ramps, lake clean up and much more.

  • All undocumented vessels, with few exceptions, must be registered with the Department of Land and Natural Resources, which assigns a separate registration number to each vessel. This number is used for search and rescue, safety control, and theft prevention. Boat owners, therefore, affix the registration number on each side of he hull with great care to assure it is legible. Proper number display is the responsibility of both the boat owner and the boat operator.
