Ohioans Encouraged to Renew Boat Registrations Online

Approximately one-third of Ohio’s watercraft registrations will expire on March 1, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). Ohioans may conveniently register watercraft online, through the mail or in person.

Ohio watercraft registrations are valid for three years. In 2012, Ohio had 432,817 registered watercraft. The ODNR Division of Watercraft processed a record 19,570 registration renewals online in 2012, up from the 16,635 registration e-renewals processed in 2011.

The online renewal process may be utilized 24 hours a day, seven days a week through Sept. 30 at ohiodnr.com/watercraft. Once the boat owner’s transaction is successfully completed, a valid boat registration and decals will be sent in the mail within 10 days. The ODNR Division of Watercraft encourages boat owners to use the online registration renewal system if they are not making any changes to boat information included in their registration.

Owner information, such as a mailing address, may be changed when using the online watercraft registration renewal process. Multiple boat registrations may be renewed online in one transaction. These secure renewal transactions require the use of a valid MasterCard or Visa credit card in addition to an ODNR Division of Watercraft assigned boat registration personal identification number.

Ohio boat owners also may renew their watercraft registrations by mail through June 30, if they have no changes to information included on their registration, including owner information. Ohioans also may renew watercraft registrations in person when visiting a watercraft registration agent.

A listing of watercraft registration agents, which includes each of the ODNR Division of Watercraft’s 11 area office locations, fee schedules and other registration information, is available at ohiodnr.com/watercraft or by calling the ODNR Division of Watercraft toll-free at 877-4BOATER (877-426-2837).

We encourage open dialogue among people who may disagree. Difficult conversations must be had sometimes to make progress. If you disagree, please disagree respectfully. Cruelty will not be tolerated. This is a family friendly group.
