Do I Have to Register My USCG Documented Vessel With the State of Georgia?


According to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, “for boats where Georgia is the state of primary use, documentation by the U.S. Coast Guard does not exempt the State of Georgia vessel registration requirement. Documentation by the U.S. Coast Guard only removes the requirement that the state registration numbers must be displayed on the vessel. You are still required to display the valid Georgia registration decal.”
