Late fee begins Thursday for expired boat decals

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Thursday is the deadline for Georgia boaters to renew their boat decals.

Under a new state law, boaters who do not renew expired registration decals before October 24th will be charged a $10 late fee.

Department of Natural Resources officials say there's a backlog when so many owners wait to renew until just before summer. They say the regulation will ease the burden, but not everyone is happy about the change.

If your boat decal expires while sitting on land, and you want to put it back in the water, the fee will be applied.
