FatDaddy,

Contact Bill Nemec in Flemington at 908-782-3175. He's done many jobs for me, both paint and vinyl. Great at color matching and reasonable too. Tell him Dave the toolman sent you!

You can get trick lettering too....not just the TOO OLD style basic, black block letters that your mom and dad used to have.

I have my numbers attached to the side of race fairing that rises from the deck, right above the walk around.

Looks nicer than on the hull, easier for coppers to read also.

By all means , let ME be the first to say itSUCKS and I live here

Default Reg.#

fat daddy,

I documented my 357 in ohio. Coast guard rules
state you don't need to display reg. # if you put the
name of your boat an your home port in 3in.
letters on the transom plus the serial number they will
send you will be placed in the engine room below the water line letters 3in. tall epoxyed to the inner hull.
boatus will have them made for you for I think $60.00.
In ohio the state sticker is applied to your side windows.
I don't think that even the state of new jersey can over
ride the us coast guard & the dept. of home land security, plus if your boat gets ripped off the federal
gov. goes after it.

Thought it says 4", and they can go anywhere on the outside of the boat....

Didn't see that part about "below the waterline". I think it just has to be on a structural member and done in such a way as to be easily visible, and obious if it's been removed. These numbers have to start with be 3".

Here's the USCG text:

"HOW DO I MARK MY VESSEL?
The official number assigned to documented vessels, preceded of the abbreviation "NO." must be marked in block-type Arabic numerals at least three inches high on some clearly visible interior structural part of the hull. The number must be permanently affixed so that alteration, removal, or replacement would be obvious and cause some scarring or damage to the surrounding hull area.

The name and hailing port of a recreational vessel must be marked together on some clearly visible exterior part of the hull. The vessel name of a commercial vessel must also be marked on the port and starboard bow and the vessel name and the hailing port must also be marked on the stern. All markings may be made by any means and materials that result in durable markings and must be at least four inches in height, made in clearly legible letters of the Latin alphabet or Arabic or Roman numerals. The "hailing port" must include both a place and a State, Territory, or possession of in the United States. The state may be abbreviated."

Back to NJ....

Check with the state first to be sure you're required to display the registration numbers. You should be able to find the info online.

Ok, here's an update. According to the U.S.C.G. website the state can not require you to display state registration numbers if the boat is documented and current. You still are required to display the state-issued registration sticker. If it's not documented you're hosed.
