The requirement is that all letters are 4" high. Nevertheless, I don't think Homeland Security will be out looking for you if you don't do all caps.

I've seen them in upper and lower case... as long as the CAP height is 4", you should be alright.

I'm 99% sure you can go with 4" capital then smaller lower case for your Home port name, I see it all the time

I can't recall seeing a mix of caps and lowercase on a sailing port.
That said, What (if any) penalties are there for not following the "rules". A little civil disobedience is good once in a while, hint hint.

Hailing Port Question
I am in the process of putting name and hailing port on our boat.
I have decided to document it also (it was documented before, so it is easy to do).
The USCG says hailing port should be in 4 inch letters- Should I make it all caps 4 inches high? I would like to make it in caps and lower case, but then the lowercase letters would not be 4" high, so I am assuming that is not an option.
