When the ownership of a boat changes, documents for title transfers must be received by the board or an agent within 30 days of the date of purchase indicated by the date of release by the previous owners. Title transfer requests received after the 30-day period are assessed a $25 penalty fee.
Renewing early is to your advantage in receiving your Certificate of Number (registration card) and decals before the boating season starts.
Several types of boating transactions can be handled by mail. Forms are available below. Print off the form you need, fill it out and mail it with appropriate payment
and/or any required documents to:
PO Box 14145
