I registered a home built boat. Call the department of safety (below). Someone will come out to inspect it and he will give you a vin number (at no charge) so that you can register it Simple. good luck :wink:

Keep your receipts so that they can tax the materials you used to make your boat... :no:

Really? Your registration cost isn't based on the cost of the boat? For example, a $1000 boat would cost $10 dollar to register and a $10,000 boat would cost $100 to register. All boats are registered under one fee?

Its definitely not based off cost of boat. Its based off of length of the boat.

Good....because I plan on building a hybrid layout boat....probably going to still be 10 ft to leave room for the dog.

And thanks for the info on the Dept. of safety :thumbsup:

Great info here.

Be sure to post up some pics. I have seen some really nice ones in the boat forums here. Someday I may give it a try, maybe when my otter starts to go.

I built two layout boats from the hybridduckboats.com site. They are awesome. We registered them, and Poorduck is correct, we had a police offer come and verify that there were no bow numbers and then DMV issued us them. $37 for a 6.5' boat

I built a custom trailer for my scull boat and just had to have a cop sign off on it. There is a form you can get from the town clerk or download it from the DMV. All in all pretty simple to do. Its the same process for homemade boats or kit cars.


And X2 to what Justin said, our reg fees are based on length and horsepower.

if your boat is a wood fiberglass hybrid id recommend using a dremel tool with a scribe bit to etch the vin number into your boat. the number has to be a permanent fixture of the hull so paint or vinyl numbers are no good. i printed the win on paper from computer in the correct font size and etched through the paper, turned out great...good luck

When I registered the Devlin I built. They wanted a list of materials used and the cost of the materials. That is what they asked me for and this was in New Hampshire. Go to or call Dover Marine, in Dover NH they will tell you what you need to get the reg. and register the boat right there also. With the material list and cost. They do want the length and horse power to price the reg. but the want an itemized list of materials also for the state not sure why that is but never had any problem after that..
