SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. (3/2/2010)
Boating season is just around the corner and The Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife Resources Division would like to remind boat owners to make sure that their vessels have a current registration.
Renewal registrations and duplicate vessel registrations can be done online, by phone or by mail. New boat registrations and transfers must be completed with the mail-in application due to required supporting documents.
“The most current information on how to register a boat – and what method you need to use, whether it is online, by phone or by mail – is available on our Division website at goboatgeorgia.com,” says Capt. Mike England of the Division License and Boat Registration Unit.
Users looking for boat registration information should access www.goboatgeorgia.com
, select “Boating” and “Vessel Registration.” Once a registration is complete, a customer should receive their decal within seven days. Registrations have an $8.00 transaction fee for Internet transactions and applications submitted by mail and $10.00 for telephone transactions.
Boat registrations and sales of hunting and fishing licenses provide key financial support for fish and wildlife conservation.
To renew by phone or for more information, call 1-800-366-2661. For online and duplicate registrations, application forms or more information, visit www.georgiawildlife.com
