DOBOR Permit Application Forms

Some application forms on the DOBOR website differ from, or are not specific to the Hawaii District Office.  To assist our members with the mooring, commercial, and boat registration application process the appropriate application forms are now on our website for you to download, print, complete and submit to the harbor office along with the other required documentation.  Our District prefers that an application for renewal be submitted 2 to 3 months prior to the expiration date.
