Owners of motorboats, sailboats or personal watercraft will need to get new, free 2011-2014 validation decals for their watercraft. The green decals expired Feb. 28. Boaters who have permanently registered their boats, sailboats, or personal watercrafts must still obtain two free boat validation decals every three years. Information Officer from  F-W-P, Vivica Crowser says before you head out this season  you need to get your new decal.

Owners who order validation decals on the FWP website will receive the decals in the mail. Crowser says a current boat registration receipt issued by the County Treasurer is needed to obtain the decals.
