However, again, I've never been asked for any of this. Only my insurance, occasionally.
What's your point? Your comments are merely based on hyperbole and hearsay. The OP only wants to know which way is the acceptable format in submitting documents required by a marina for the purposes of legitimately identifying a vessel. While there are some out there who's sole purpose in life is larceny, the least not being those that steal our time with trivialities, the greater body of humanity does not have conspiracy in their hearts.
