FYI for those needing registration renewal:

Online watercraft renewal underway

Michigan's nearly 1 million registered boat owners can now renew their watercraft registrations online with the Michigan Department of State.

The Web-based program will provide watercraft owners with the convenience of renewing from home or office 24 hours a day. Michigan residents can also renew watercraft registrations by touch-tone telephone or mail, or at Department of State branch office. Online and touch-tone renewal options started March 1 and end Aug. 31, 2004.

"It may be winter now, but warmer weather and the boating season will be here before you know it," Michigan Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land said. "I encourage all boat owners to take advantage of renewing online."

Registration decals are mailed within seven to 10 days, Land said.

Colorful "Don't be left at the clock," inserts included with the notices remind customers of the convenience of online and touch-tone renewal, Land said. Instructions and the personal identification numbers needed to login to the system are also provided in the notices. Payment is by VISA, MasterCard or Discover credit cards.

All watercraft on Michigan waters, including privately owned lakes and waterways, must be registered except:

> Watercraft 16 feet or less, propelled by oars or paddles, and not used for rental or commercial purposes.

> Non-motorized canoes and kayaks not used for rental or commercial purposes.

> Rafts, surfboards, sailboats, and swim floats.

> Watercraft registered in another state and used only temporarily in Michigan.

Registrations expire on March 31 in the third year of issuance. For more information, call (517) 373-2520
