Announcing that the cost of something is going up is kind of like telling you that the sun is coming up this morning. But it is what it is.
The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries sent out a reminder that boat registration fees are going up — today. During the 2021 Legislative Session, changes were made to motorboat registration fees. Starting today, November 15, 2021, the motorboat registration fees will change to the following simplified fee structure.
|Boat Length||Registration Fee|
|15 ft. 11 in. or less||$36|
|16 ft. to 25 ft. 11 in.||$57|
|26 ft. to 39 ft. 11 in.||$78|
|40 ft. or more||$99|
Any motorboat registration application received by the Department postmarked before November 15, 2021, will be accepted and processed with the previous fee structure. For motorboat registration inquiries, contact (225) 765-2898.

Sorry. I wish I could have known to remind you of this last week so you could have gotten yours in before the price went up, but I missed that one.
