The third edition of the National Vessel Numbering and Titling Manual was released by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators.

The manual will help numbering and titling professionals improve their state programs by providing information about state numbering and titling laws, regulations and other areas of interest.

This manual summarizes information gathered in a survey of states' numbering and titling practices and requirements conducted by the association's vessel identification, numbering and titling committee.

The manual features information about which states title vessels and which vessels require a title in each state, as well as contact information for state agencies, marine theft units, registration agencies and titling agencies.

"By sharing this information among the states, the Numbering and Titling Manual will advance NASBLA's goals of uniformity and reciprocity across the nation, as well as assist in reducing boat fraud and theft," NASBLA executive director John Johnson said in a statement.
