Boat Names – Transom Charm
Boat Names – Stern Personality
“The boat name you select may not seem like an important thing. But, considering the strong feelings many of us have for our boats; the fact that we put so much work, and sweat and money into them; the fact they are a big part of our memories of so many good times, with family, with friends; the fact that sometimes our very lives are in the safekeeping of our boat; most of us feel that selecting the right name for our boat is important.”- The Frugal Mariner
Legal Name Considerations
The name of your boat is also a consideration by the United States Coast Guard. Keep your registration documents on your boat so they are available for inspection. If you own a boat 5 net tons or greater, it needs documentation, too. Permanently affix documentation numbers to the interior of your boat. Display the boat’s home port and name on the hull in letters at least 4 inches high.
