Vessel Documentation & CF Numbers?

Hi all. I finally received my U.S. Coastguard vessel documentation numbers. I know that I have to attach them permanently to the hull somewhere in the cabin. Can I now remove the old CF numbers on my bow? I don't think I need to have both.

Thanks,

It depends on the state... some states require all boats, even USCG documented ones to be state registered and display the state registration numbers... others do not require the boat be state registered.

As for the USCG documentation number, I had a copper plate made up with the numbers on it..and then bolted and epoxied it to the interior of the boat... ain't coming out without a sledge hammer or sawzall.

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.

In Washington state you do not need the state numbers, and IIRC I have seen commercial fishing boats from CA that do not have the state reg. numbers on them. Just call the local licensing dept. and they should be able to tell you.

On the documented boats that I have had the doc. numbers have been carved or routered into a wooden beam or board. I like the idea of a copper or bronze plate as SD did.

It's my understanding that if you are a US documented boat you do not show any state registration numbers and the state can not require registration numbers on the hull. You may be required to have a state registration and may have to display a state sticker on your hull (tax stamp in effect). You do have to display the US document number in an easily seen place in the interior of the boat and that has to be mounted in such a way that it will leave an obvious scar if removed.

It is state dependent as mentioned, good news is California is an either/or state. You can remove the CF numbers, you won't have a registration sticker for them anymore so they aren't valid anyway.
