Going Boating For Memorial Day? Taking Care of Business is Easy
For Immediate Release -May 18, 2011
The summer boating forecast is fantastic…there’s plenty of water, plenty of fish and plenty of access to the water for all your boating activities.  Memorial Day Weekend is the traditional kick-off to the summer boating season and the Oregon State Marine Board is opening early and closing late on May 26 and 27, so boaters can renew their boat registration or apply for a title before the big weekend.
The Marine Board office will open at 7:30 a.m. and close at 6 p.m. on May 26 and 27 instead of the normal business hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  The Marine Board office is located at 435 Commercial Street NE in Salem.
Boats with expired '09 or '10 registration decals can also renew online.  Visit https://securepay.oregon.gov/osmb/Renewal.jsp to take advantage of this option. 
Remember to boat safe: boat sober and wear your life jacket.  For more tips to help you prepare for your maiden voyage, visit www.boatoregon.com
