Registering Your Homebuilt Boat Article

Since I've been receiving a few emails with registration questions, I thought I'd write up this article on how to go about registering your homebuilt boat with your State or Province. Though everywhere is a bit different, the basics apply to most US States Canadian Provinces, and other Western countries. It is something you should be familiar with while you're building your boat. You don't want to be surprised when you go to launch it and find out you need to go back and reconstitute a bunch of paperwork that may take weeks to get.

The "Registering Your Homebuilt Boat" article is available as a free download in theBoat Plans Insider Informationsection, which you can join for free.

Also included is this cool free download of a Carpenter's Certificate you can use for your project:
