The Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation (RBFF)'s Boat Registration Reactivation Program worked with 50,462 boat owners with lapsed registrations to renew their registration and get back on the water in 2019.

More than 600,000 letters were sent to owners of lapsed boats in 19 states, resulting in 50,462 registrations. This drove program revenue to nearly $1.9 million and an estimated $145,000 in additional revenue from the Sportfish Restoration and Boating Trust Fund.
