Which Boats Require Registration?
Requirements for vessel registration vary from state to state. In Oklahoma, you must have an Oklahoma Certificate of Registration and validation decals to operate your vessel legally on public waters. The only exceptions are:
- Vessels registered in other states using Oklahoma waters for 60 days or less
- Vessels documented by the U.S. Coast Guard using Oklahoma waters for 60 days or less
- Vessels used exclusively and solely for racing purposes
