This is the National Form of Registration for your boat. It's the "official number" awarded to each documented boat that stays with the boat forever. It does not change as the boat is resold over the years from one owner to the net. Vessels that measure at least five net tons are required to have a Documentation Number. One thing to understand is that "five net tons" does not refer to the weight of the vessel, it is associated with the vessel's volume. In simple terms, vessels that are more than 25 feet in length will measure five net tons or more.
Any vessel at least 5 net tons (roughly 25'+) wholly owned by a US Citizen used in fishing activities on navigable waters of the US or in the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ)

My Documentation Board
"Far better than expected" are the words that best describe the Boat Outfitter Documentation Board. I am impressed by the high quality of the materials, the execution and the appearance. I particularly like the fact that the board is NOT made of teak as it would have been rather difficult for a teak board to have matched the existing teak interior. I could not be more pleased! Delivery time was as promised and I was kept informed of the production and delivery process throughout. Thank you!

Hello, where is the most common location for the USCG placard?
A shopper on Mar 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Great Question,

According to the United States Coast Guard, The placards are supposed to be placed in an area that they are permanently affixed so that alteration, removal, or replacement would be obvious and cause some scarring or damage to the surrounding hull area.

I have included a link below for other information that may be useful for placement and usage of the placard. .

My 36' Grand Banks was previously registered by USGC but is purely a pleasure craft. No commercial or fishing. does it need to be USCG registered?
Henry V on Feb 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Henry, this is a great question, although I do not believe that we are the best resource to answer for you. In our research it would appear that you do not need to document your vessel based off your intended uses, but I would certainly encourage you to contact the USCG for confirmation on this. You can reach the USCG at 1-800-535-8570. Thank you!
