Before filling out your Watercraft Information:

The RRA has in its system a record of all watercraft registered in 2019 and will compare using the information provided. If your State Registration expired 3/1/2020, you must renew with the State prior to registering with the RRA. If you purchased a new watercraft, you must provide proof of ownership that includes length, date of sale, and your name. See accepted forms of documentation. Questions? Email Us.

Your 2020 Dues and Assessments must be paid in full before the RRA can process your decals.

Renewing State Registration:

4/2/2020 Note: We have received word that ODNR has begun issuing temporary vouchers for registrations. Please provide the RRA with a copy of this letter/voucher when registering your watercraft with us.

If you need to update your registration with the State and are unable to do so in person, you can still mail in your renewal, renew online, or call ODNR at 1-877-426-2837 for phone-in options or if you have questions.
