It’s time to renew: 2013 boat decals expire June 30
OLYMPIA—Boating season is here, and the deadline for renewing boat and watercraft registration decals is right around the corner. All state boat registrations expire on June 30.
Don’t let an expired registration spoil your day; remember to renew before you get out on the water.
Boat registrations can be renewed online at the Department of Licensing website or in person at a neighborhood vehicle licensing office.
Those who choose to renew at an office should make sure to note the registration number on the bow of the boat or watercraft and take that information to the office.
Due to budget cuts, DOL discontinued paper renewal notices for boats in 2010 and instead offered boat owners the opportunity to sign up to receive email renewal reminders. It’s too late to sign up for an email renewal reminder for this year, but boat owners can sign up online at www.dol.wa.gov to receive renewal reminders by email in the future.
