Ah me...government departments...you have got to love 'em.

End September send payment.

Beginning of November ring NSW Maritime to enquire when we'd get new rego sticker and/or why we hadn't already received it.

Answer....

You have gotta love 'em.

The other side of this coin...

I just went to the RI Department Of Environmental Management (Boat Registration) to register my new to me boat... Looking through their website I expected to pay $250 to have her re-registered in my name.

Teller: "Do you still have the stickers?"
Me: "Uh, I guess so. 'You mean the ones on the bow?"
Teller: "Ok, that will be ten dollars, and you'll be good until 2012."
Me: "Do you take cash?!?!"

I wanted to get out of here ASAP - before she changed her mind.

Total to register and document the boat $97 for 2011! WooHoo!!
