"If Found" Sticker

If Found Sticker

The "If Found" sticker for human-propelled (kayaks, canoes, standup paddleboards) and other non-registered boats was designed to help save lives, recover missing property, and reduce the time, effort and resources expended on non-emergency search and rescues.

The waterproof stickers are available free of charge to Connecticut residents and provide space for your name and two phone numbers.  It's important to list two phone numbers; if you fall overboard, your cell phone may end up in the water with you and no longer work.

Affixing the "If Found" sticker on board your boat will help emergency responders determine if a true emergency exists if your boat is found.

Request a sticker by emailing the Boating Division at Include the number of stickers you need and your mailing address.
