For Boats

Your boat registration in Wisconsin will be valid for around three years. As a rule, all motorboats and sailboats over 12 ft long are required to be registered.

For Firearms

Wisconsin does not have a special law requiring firearm registration. Documenting firearms that you’re taking with you while moving to the state is neither required. Individuals are currently permitted to carry handguns openly in the state of Wisconsin.
