Requirements for vessel registration vary from state to state. In Delaware, you must have a Delaware Certificate of Number (registration) and validation decals to operate your vessel legally on public waters. The only exceptions are:

  • Non-motorized vessels
  • Vessels registered in other states using Delaware waters for 60 days or less
  • Vessels documented with the U.S. Coast Guard
