    What size letters and numbers do you have to use for your tag number? I got some two inch at walmart, but they are smaller than whats on my other boat.

    IF I'm not mistaken it varies from state to state, but we're supposed to use 3" here. Sounds big till u put it on the boat.

    Yea, like Matt said. Different states have different regulations on what size the letters have to be. Check with your local dept. of fish and wildlife, they should have the answer.

    The Certificate of Registration must be on board and available for inspection by an enforcement officer at all times.

    The registration number and validation decals must be displayed as follows.

    * Number must be painted, applied as a decal, or otherwise affixed to both sides of the bow as high above the water line as possible.
    * Number must read from left to right on both sides of the bow.
    * Number must be in at least three-inch-high BLOCK letters.
    * Number must be maintained to be legible.
    * Number's color must contrast with its background.
    * Letters must be separated from the numbers by a space or hyphen; for example: OK 3717 ZW or OK-3717-ZW.
    * No other numbers may be displayed on either side of the bow.
    * Decals must be affixed on both sides of the bow, behind (towards the stern) and in line with the number.
