Trying to Locate Your Boat Registration Renewal Notice Fee?

ATTENTION BOAT OWNERS: If you have recently received a renewal notice for your registered boat, please note that there was a printing error. The notice does not clearly show the renewal fee. The renewal fee amount is located below the expiration date on your Boat Registration Renewal Notice (BRRN). See the sample below for an illustration of where to find your renewal fee amount on your BRRN. This printing error does not prevent you from renewing your boat registration by mail. We apologize for the inconvenience.
