Just curious about registration fees for jon boats. I'm running a 15x42 and just got my registration renewal and it seems pretty steep. Anyone else have the same problem and or suggestions?

I run an older (mid 80s) partial Vhull 14x42 and it was about $50 to renew. Not sure what to compare it to personally so just is what it is to me. But hopefully that helps in your comparison!

I pay $38 for my 2008 1648 Jon.....You need to make sure it is registered as a utility boat. DO NOT let the state register it by length. If you bought the boat new and let the dealer register it for you I guarantee that's where the problem lies.

go in to the dmv and tell them that the boat is a jon boat. Then they will fix the problem and charge you what it should be. then you wont have this problem again. Depending on what dmv you go to and you have problems let me know and i might be able to help you out with it.

The DMV messes mine up every year. I get charged as a 19' ski boat instead of a jon boat. And every year I have to argue to get it corrected. They always say it is fixed for next time but never is. Dustin was able to help me get it fixed the first time I had the problem. Now I just have to tell them to look how it was registered the year prior.

Does that include the invasive species fee? (Quagga Muscles)

Well... the County assessor went a little rough. Turns out I overpaid $140!!! The lady basically told me there was nothing I could do until it came due for registration again. I was like, look.... you are the government and you owe me money. Legally you can't keep it. I was like, who can I talk to above you? She said to talk to the Treasurer's office... I went over there, told them what was going on and she had me fill out a request for refund. Now... will I get it back? I don't know... but believe me I will be following up!
