Boaters have till Sept. 30 to register watercraft

COLUMBUS Ohio boaters now have until Sept. 30 to renew their watercraft registrations electronically through the Ohio Department of Natural Resources at www.ohiodnr.com.

For the first time, canoes and kayaks can be registered online.

The renewal system has registered more than 9,000 watercraft through the Web site so far this year. That s an increase over last year from about 5,900 online renewals.

Address changes for watercraft owners can be made online, but incorrect or outdated registration information must be corrected in person through a registration agent. A list of agents is available on the Web site.

New and renewed watercraft registrations need a 12-character hull ID number. Boat owners can also call the ODNR Division of Watercraft at 1-877-426-2837.
