Boats Must Display Orange Decals

North Dakota boats displaying a green registration decal have an expired license, reminds Nancy Boldt, boat and water safety coordinator for the state Game and Fish Department.

The current registration, which runs from Jan. 1, 2008 through Dec. 31, 2010, is an orange decal. All boat registrations with a green decal expired Dec. 31, 2007.

Boat registrations can be renewed online at the Game and Fish Department’s website, To renew a boat registration, access the online services link and click on “watercraft registration and renewals.”

Also, anyone buying a new or used watercraft can register online and generate a 10-day temporary permit that is valid until the registration is processed.

Renewal notices for the current three-year period were mailed in December. Boat owners who have not received a renewal notice, or have misplaced it, should contact the department at 701-328-6335.
