Computers Even Have Trouble With Boat Rush The State Conservation Commission is experiencing the heavy annual pressure of Iowa boat owners, who traditionally wait until the last minute to apply for boat registrations. Despite changing over to new computerized methods of handling the more than 60,000 registrations, an inevitable pile-up of letters occurs. Additional help has been employed to ease the delays caused by the volume of work and extra hours are spent each year on registering boats ahead of the May kick-off of the summer boating season. Boat owners who applied for their registrations prior to April 10 and have not received a verification should have received either the registration or a letter concerning it by May 5. The State Conservation Commission requests those who applied later than April 10 to be patient, as the new computers take over and they expect the backlog to become unsnarled at a rapid pace. All boat owners who have made application for their registration are asked not to send additional checks or money with a second application. Your application has not been lost, it is only delayed. Letters, phone calls and other interruptions only add to the extra time it takes to register the great number of boats in Iowa. Owners of new boats and owners making transfers should apply to their local Conservation Officer for a temporary permit.
