Boat Rego Sticker

 Hi Guys,


I just realised I haven't put the new rego sticker on my boat I from a while back and can't find it anymore :(


Do boats still need the rego sticker on them or is it like cars now?

 Yeah they do. Go along to licensing with rego papers and you should be able to get one. Oh and proof of id like drivers licence etc.

"The registration identification label is to be fixed to the port (left) side of the vessel, next to the registration number."

Guessing that the rego sticker is formally known as "registration idenfification label"

I haven't put mine on the last two years. Far as I'm concerned it serves no purpose and my rego number is sufficient for the DoT/Water Pigs as it is with my car.

I could see how it'd be a useful reminder for someone's Nanna or such though.

 I can’t remember the last time I put one on my boat. Every now and again I come across one in the bottom draw of the kitchen where the missus just stuffs everything in there.

 I got quizzed a month or so ago by marine and harbours or whoever they are. Gave me a warning, sticker is on now.

I found it a bit hard to keep up with everything until I got dot direct. All in one place now.
