We used high quality vinyl graphics on our boat. The graphic designer was able to the artwork and show us on his computer with a model what
Our finished product would look like. We changed it and tweaked it until we got what we wanted in the price range we wanted.
You should be able to do the same; we worked with somebody out of St. Claire Shores.
A lot of people nowadays; especially the boats with the swim platforms, are opting to place the name on either side of the hull near the stern, the size is as big as you're freeboard allows.
Than a smaller one is placed somewhere on the transom along with the homeport.

Beautiful boat. Isn't that a Catalina 42? And all that talk about Catalinas... you should be ashamed.

On this side of the pond we have a new rule, the name and the registration number have to be on both bow and stern. So "Jonathan-Livingston B748690" is going to reach admidships.

Assuming you have more than enough room to do the name 4" high...you should try to use most of the transom width and then maintain the 4:3 ratio between name and home port below. The boatus.com site has a nice interactive application that lets you see what it would look like with different type styles, curves, shading etc....did ours using this and I was happy with the results:

If Coast Guard docutmented the name must be at least 4" letters while the home port must be 3". I don't know if Michigan has any regulations on the matter, but if they did would expect that would have to equal the USCG ones.
