Replacement Boater Education Card Fee Increase
Starting January 1, 2007, the cost for replacing a boater education card goes from $5 to $8, due to increasing costs for processing and mailing. The Oregon State Marine Board recently approved a fee increase for a replacement boater education card at the December 14th meeting in Salem.
"If boaters have lost their card, had their name changed, or if their card is damaged or stolen, boaters need to order a replacement card," says MariAnn Koloszar, Education Coordinator for the Marine Board.
The fee for not carrying a boater education card is $97. In 2007, boaters who are 60 and younger, operating a boat over 10 hp, need to take a boating safety course and apply for a boater education card. More than 150,000 Oregonians have their boater education card.
