Documentation/Official Number

I have searched here, the USCG and other sites and I still have a question.
I need the size and shape of the numbers you post on the inside of the boat. The USCG site states what size on the outside of the boat, but inside it just states to post it on a inside main member, but makes no note on size. Anybody know the right size?? many thanks Al

Mine is about two feet long and 6-8" wide. Did you try calling the USCG? They are always very easily accessible and very cordial.

"Sec. 67.121 Official number marking requirement.

The official number of the vessel, preceded by the abbreviation
``NO.'' must be marked in block-type Arabic numerals not less than three
inches in height on some clearly visible interior structural part of the
hull.
The number must be permanently affixed to the vessel so that
alteration, removal, or replacement would be obvious. If the official
number is on a separate plate,"

Make sure it's a permanent fixture that can't be removed or changed without damage. Ours, for example, were created by placing thick vinyl numbers in our shower, epoxying over them and then painting over those.

The way I did the numbers on my boat is to bolt and epoxy a copper plate that had the numbers cast into it to the hull.

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.

I just used vinyl numbers and epoxied over them under a step in the main salon. It passed my last inspection.

Ours were spray painted onto the inside of the hull using letter templates (inside of a cockpit locker), and that passed inspection.
