OHIO BOATER OWNERS CAN GO ONLINE TO RENEW WATERCRAFT REGISTRATIONS QUICKLY, EASILY|
COLUMBUS, OH - Ohioans with watercraft registrations due to expire March 1 are urged to update their “paperwork” online through the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) online registration renewal system at ohiodnr.com .
“It’s a fast and easy process that continues to provide added convenience for Ohio boaters and ensures they are ready for the upcoming boating season,” said Rick Barrera, manager of the Division of Watercraft’s registration and titling section.
Last year, a total of 5,890 watercraft registration renewals were completed through the online system, which can be accessed 24 hours each day through June 30.
Approximately 130,000 renewal notices are currently being mailed to watercraft owners with registrations due to expire March 1. Registrations are valid for a period of three years and fees remain unchanged from last year. Ohio has more than 414,000 registered watercraft and ranks eighth nationally in the number of watercraft registered.
Address changes for boat owners can also be made through the online system. Incorrect or outdated boat registration information must be corrected through a watercraft registration agent. Watercraft registrations that are being renewed or newly issued must also include a valid 12-character Hull Identification Number.
A listing of watercraft registration agents is available at ohiodnr.com and by calling the ODNR Division of Watercraft toll-free at 877-4BOATER (877-426-2837).
