If you own a boat or other watercraft, now’s the time to renew your registration in time for the Anacortes boating season!

All watercraft registration expires June 30, 2017. The Skagit County Auditor’s Office urges you not to wait to renew your registration as the lines may be long.

The vast majority of vessels registered in Washington have HIN numbers that comply with the new Coast Guard standards, but some vessels are required to have new HIN numbers assigned to meet the US Coast Guard standards.
The involved vessel owners have already been sent letters by DOL notifying them that they are required to get new HIN Numbers.

Standard watercraft renewal can be done in person and local licensing offices or online, at http://www.dol.wa.gov/vehicleregistration/renewboat.html. You can choose to have decals mailed to you or you can pick them up locally – even if you register online.

For a list of local licensing offices, or to sign up for an annual online renewal reminder, visit the Skagit County Auditor’s Office licensing page: www.skagitcounty.net/AuditorLicensing.

Anacortes Skyline Marina Receives 5 Star Rating!

The Skagit County Health District has awarded the Anacortes Skyline Marina the highest rating attainable, 5-Star, in the EnviroStars Program. The 5-Star level of performance qualifies the Skyline Marina to be designated as one of the official Washington State “Clean Marinas.”

Nationally recognized, the goal of the EnviroStars Program is to give businesses incentives and recognition for reducing hazardous waste, while giving consumers an objective way to identify environmentally sound businesses. Clean Marina Washington was created in 2005 as an expansion of the EnviroStars program and is an incentive-based certification program in which marinas assess their operations and implement improvements to better protect the environment.

The Anacortes Skyline Marina, which opened in 1965, completed its initial certification and was awarded the 5-Star rating by the Health District. The Anacortes based Marina was first certified at the 4-Star level in December 2005, and has been re-inspected annually to maintain this level. As a result of continually improving internal operating processes and procedures, the marina earned a 5-Star rating.
