Hi
I've bought myself a 10ftl tinny and have a small outboard 3.3HP. I am about to buy a 8hp outboard that will mean the boat needs to be registered (over 4HP). Do the details of the outboard have to be supplied when registering the boat and secondly do the boat and outboard have to be taken to the dept transport for inspection when registering? Reason for asking about outboard details is that if I change motor, do I have to advise Qld transport of the change?

Thanks for your help

Kevin

Correct answer would be from QLD TMR.
I would do it right as we see the rangers on Morton Bay all the time checking rego etc.

Might be cheaper than the fine.

They don't need to see the boat or motor. You can download and print the recreational ships registration form off the dot site and fill it in at home so you can get the numbers off the boat and motor. They are fairly self explanatory. If you have a trailer it gets a bit more complicated as you will need a roadworthy for it.

Hi.
If you have a friend in another State. register it with them
I think we are the dearest My two boats are $165.00"? each Caravan the same.
and 6x4 around the same.
Used to keep reg'd in Vict. $35ish for caravan and trlr And Cars a lot less too (pensioner rates)
Now around $165 ea.
And don't buy a trlr for rooftopper. I did, Now it's boat rego plus trlr.
2 boatsplus 6x4 and Caravan rego's and Ins are over a grand a yr now.
Just for the bloody paperwork.

Once your vehiclesthat are registered in another State have been at your registered address for more than 14 days in QLD they are uninsured and unregistered..

Thank's Tom.

But police in Victoria b4 we left said we have a month. and if you have a property in Vict (Which we do) you can keep them reg'd down there all the time.
We kept both cars. caravan and boat reg'd down there for the first 10 or so yrs we lived here.

A simple game of 20 questions, that establishes you are in fact a QLD resident and deliberately avoiding QLD fees and you cop a string of fines and you are a pedestrian till you can get the vehicles registered in the state you are resident in.

The authorities are not stupid and people are zipped for this regularly.

Question 1. when was the last time you returned to Victoria?

Queston 2. Where are you employed?

Question 3.What address did you lodge your last tax return from.

Yeh lots of people try it on ...... lots of people get zipped.

cheers

Don't worry We legal.

Own both properties, both residential.
lived in both, one for 45+yrs, 1 for 15ish yrs,Intermittently.
Snapper/Tuna season. Then Spanno/Sailfish at other end.
Perfect.
We also have property in N.T too where I kept a yacht for 20 yrs
b4 retiring.

Pension people happy.
We have one car and one trailer (boat/caravan) reg'd in each State nowadays. Vict/Q'land licences.
It's quite doable if you work it right. Legally.

Do your sums and check on it if you like. I don't need to.
