A Note from Boat Angel Team Members:


Lots of boaters along the Mississippi and along the Gulf Coast call us asking what they have to do to get their boat ready for donation. The answers are pretty simple: get a copy of your title, make sure it is readable, find the exact address the boat is stored at and if it is a storage yard or marina, let us know.

Take all your personal items off the boat - cellphone, first aid kits, any medications, tools, fishing gear, blankets, jackets, hats, sunglasses, sunblock, copies of your registration, wallet, gas credit cards, gas and repair receipts. Once those things are off the boat then when it is picked up you will not have to be concerned about trying to track them down.

If you are concerned about your donation expenses, you will not be responsible for any loading or moving charges after the donation is in process. If the marina charges to have the boat loaded into the water or onto a trailer the person picking up the boat will cover those charges.

  • If you are concerned about the tax receipt. Our home page website has a link to the IRS charity search and you can see our tax number 42-1619552 posted clearly. We will issue you a 1098c receipt for either the fair market value of the boat or the sales amount received for the boat. Call us 800-227-2643 for a full explanation.
  • Do not worry about your boat's running condition. You'll be asked on our EZ process questionairre to tell us about it, however, if it does not work, if the battery is dead, if the engine needs to be rebuilt or the steering is jammed... don't worry! You don't have to make those repairs.
  • When you fill out the EZ process form we get to work immediately and will help you say goodbye to the boat you are no longer using. If you have lost your title or Coast Guard Documentation don't worry. Call us, we can still process it with a copy of your title or documentation which is something easily obtained. Thanks for helping us help others.
