That's why I'm wondering what it costs to replace, the regular fee for the permanent plate or just a replacement fee of $10.

Fortunately for me when I bought my boat the trailer registration didn't have the weight listed so I had to estimate it somewhere under 2500 lbs.

When the renewal sticker was stolen off our plate we approached the DMV about replacing them. They told us that we had to pay the full renewal amount. Screw that! We got stopped a couple of months later for expired tags the cops tried to argue with us that there is no fee for a stolen sticker. They got a call and left before giving us a ticket. We went back to the DMV and now there was no charge for a replacement sticker.

I haven't checked into it yet. I called the sheriff to report it stolen so I'm clear in case the low-life who stole it gets a ticket. I want to move the boat this weekend so I'll have to pick up a plate on Friday. I'll let you know what it costs.

sometimes trailer plates come loose and fall off during launch and retrieval.
check your launch ramp
