Just thought I'd pass this on.

Effective July 1, 2016, a person who owns a recreational vessel equipped with an emergency position-indicating radio beacon or that owns a personal locator beacon may be eligible to receive a fee reduction when applying for an original or renewal vessel registration at their local Tax Collector's Office.

Vessel Fee Reduction Requirements:

The emergency position-indicating radio beacon or personal locator beacon is currently registered with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) at beaconregistration.noaa.gov.
A valid beacon registration certificate must be presented at time of vessel registration at their local Tax Collector's Office.
A person who owns a personal locator beacon and who owns more than one vessel qualifies to pay the reduced fee for only one vessel.
A person who owns an emergency position-indicating radio beacon qualifies to pay the reduced fee for all vessels equipped with emergency position-indicating radio beacon.
