Re: Boat name location
It seems the OP is in Canada, whose rules I do not know.
You would, however, see the same inconsitency in the US. But there is a distinction here. If you title and register your boat with a State, they typically only require application of your registration number in 3" or larger plain font on each side. Whether you name your boat at all or where you put the name is usually up to you.
If you document your boat with the USCG, you may still need to register it with a State, but are typically exempt from having to display registration numbers. However, the USCG requires the boat name and hailport you put on your application to be displayed on the transom. Many, however, do not have room with steps, etc to do so and apply the name on each side closest to the transom. I do not think this is legit, but it is commonly done and I've never heard of anyone being dinged for it.
