De-documented and state registered labelling

So my boat has been de-documented and state registered. So I understand that I have to put the state numbers on the bow. But can I leave the boat name and home port on the stern? Or does the home port have to come off? Doesn't sound likely now I think about it.

Probably state by state but In Florida the numbering and decal are all that is mentioned in the code. You can paint whatever you like on the side and aft within reason (don't think you could try to pass as a coast gaurd or state official vessel for instance)

Like Silvio, I don't think you would have to change the name or home port that is there.

I'm curious as to why you had the boat de-documented?

As Silvio notes, rules governing undocumented vessels are ultimately determined on a state-by-state basis. For what it's worth however, I can't think of any state offhand that prohibits a name and hailing port from being displayed on the transom of a state-registered vessel. I guessing you're looking for CA's rules specifically though?

Nope, you are good, you can leave your name and hailing port or change at will. You must display your state registration tag and numbers (CF 6666 XX) on the bow.
