Completed forms may be submitted in person by Tuesday, August 31, or sent by certified mail/return receipt. Only one application per boat is permitted, and must be submitted by the boat owner. Lottery applicants must be able to show current proof of boat ownership or lease at the time of entry. Boats titled to dealerships are not eligible.
