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.
The KDWP is responsible for regulating the state boating laws in Kansas.

Upon receipt, the permanent Certificate of Number must be signed, carried on board and available for inspection by an enforcement officer whenever the boat or PWC is being operated.
Successful registration results in a certificate of number,physical boat numbers and a decal. Your registration MUST be kept on board the vessel at all times. (It is advisable to keep the registration in a dry-bag on board.) Boat numbers must:
For example: KA 123BX or KA-123-BX. This is a Federal and state requirement.
Lack of the correct documentation can result in delays and fines. Make sure all boats are properly marked and documented. It's important to keep your papers with the boat - be particularly aware when transferring ownership of your vessel.
