Alabama boat owners may spend less time waiting in lines and more time on the water this year. The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency says those owners are now able to renew their boat registrations on-line instead of at the courthouse. Colonel John Richardson of the ALEA says this service is available to anyone whose current registration information does not need to be changed or corrected. Owners may go to the department’s web site – ALEA.gov – and follow the instructions. All they need is an internet connection and a valid credit card, and the rest of the process should be smooth sailing.
