The Commodore reminds us that Lee as well as many other FL counties adds asubstantial surcharge to the cost of registering a boat. This surcharge
can be avoided by registering the boat in a non-surcharge county such as Hendry. This is perfectly legal since the county is simply
collecting a fee for the state. To do this contact the office of the Hendry County Tax Collector, Patrick B. Langford. The phone number is
863-675-5280 and the address is 25 E. Hickpochee Ave., P.O. Drawer 1780, LaBelle, FL,
33975. Have your current registration or notice of renewal at hand when you make the call. You can pay by credit card for small fee. Also note
that boats over 30 years old with the original type power plant qualify as Antique and there is NO registration fee (only $4.25 handling fee for sticker in Hendry County).
