Boats Need Proper Registration

Boat owners are reminded to display a blue and white validation sticker with an expiration year of “13” on their watercraft.

The current three-year registration cycle runs through Dec. 31, 2013. All boat registrations with an orange decal expired Dec. 31, 2010.

For information on how to attach the number and validation sticker to a boat, refer to page 10 of the 2011-13 North Dakota Boat and Water Safety Guide.

Boat registrations can be renewed online at the department’s website,, by accessing the online services link, and “watercraft registration and renewals” under the watercraft heading.

Boat owners who need a renewal notice should contact the North Dakota Game and Fish Department by email at [email protected], or call (701) 328-6335.

Also, anyone buying a new or used watercraft can register online and generate a 10-day temporary permit that is valid until the registration is processed.
