Maine offers online renewals for watercraft registration

Maine Gov, John E. Baldacci last week signed a bill that allows state residents to renew their watercraft online.

“Since taking office five years ago, I have made it a goal for Maine government to be more open and accessible to her people and this includes making more government services available online,” Baldacci said in a statement. “I’m very pleased that we are helping Maine people access an array of such services, putting everything from volunteerism opportunities to dog licenses and now boat registration renewals, at their fingertips.”

The legislation allows Maine residents to renew watercraft registration through a safe and secure Web site. The Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife will continue to administer the registrations both online and in person.

Officials estimate that 125,000 watercraft are registered in Maine.
