Regarding Documented Vessels

Hello,
I am wondering where have those of you with USCG Documented Vessels "permanently affixed on interior surface with numbers not less than 3 inches in height" your number.
Did you burn it into wood, glass a plaque in, dremel tool it?

Thanks,
Greg

On my boat, one of the previous owners used vinyl numbers and affixed them inside one of the lazarettes. They were then painted over with clear epoxy resin to make them permanent.

On Rhythm a PO had the numbers routed into a wooden plaque which was then permanently mounted to a wooden facia on the setee.

I had a copper plate made of the numbers and that is epoxied and bolted to the hull interior.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Greg,

It sounds like your are in the process of documenting your boat. At the risk of hijacking the thread, I'd like to ask why? What are the reasons for documenting?
Can I benefit from documenting in the Great Lakes.

Thanks,
Paul

USCG documentation provides a few very useful benefits. First, the USCG documentation process is a ONE TIME FEE, and annual renewals are free. In many states, this means you don't have to pay the annual state registration fees, like in Massachusetts... which can save you some money every year.

It is also the only registration that is generally recognized by countries further from the United States. While countries like the Bahamas, Mexico and Canada may recognize a state-registered boat, as you get further from the USA, the less likely that is to be the case. States are not internationally sovereign, and as such, state registration not recognized by other governments in many cases.

Also, USCG documented boats are recognized as US-flagged vessels and enjoy greater legal protections when in foreign waters.

My registration numbers were engraved on wood and glassed in a closet opposite the head by the builder. Canadian ship registration.
