Course Outline

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

  • Non-motorized vessels
  • Vessels documented with the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG)
  • Vessels with valid registration in another state or country, temporarily on the waters of South Carolina
