Marine & Ports: Boat/Mooring Reminder

March 23, 2011

The Boats and Moorings Section of the Department of Marine and Ports Boats and Moorings Section has issued a reminder to boat and mooring owners to renew registrations by Thursday March 31st, 2011. The full statement follows below:

The Department of Marine and Ports, Boats and Moorings section, today issued a reminder to boat and mooring owners that the deadline for registration renewals is 4.30 p.m. Thursday March 31st, 2011.

New 2011 decals must be in place by April 1st on all moorings and boats. Mooring licences that are unpaid as of July 1st will be cancelled and the buoys cut.

Boat and mooring owners should have received their annual renewal notices through the mail.

Failure to receive a renewal notice does not exempt mooring owners from a late fee effective April 1.

Boats are not subject to a late fee but unless they are out of the water by law they must be registered and display a current decal. All boats including punts and kayaks should be registered if in use.

Anyone who has not yet received a renewal notice will need to come to the Department to pay in person.

Every year hundreds of undelivered renewal notices are returned to the Department. Boat and mooring owners are encouraged to make sure they have a correct address on file with the Department.

Transfers of boats or moorings must be done in person with ID at the department.

Those who need to update their address can call the Department on 294-4453 or email: to update their details.

Payment can be made in three ways:

o Payment in person- methods are cash, cheque or card
o Payment online through HSBC. Detailed instructions are included in the renewal notice.
o Mail in cheque- self addressed envelope included as part of the renewal notice- no stamp needed.

Members of the public coming to pay in person are advised that there is no parking at Marine and Ports. Please park either at the top of Spurling Hill or the Supermarket parking lot. Opening hours are Monday to Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
