BoatWiki - Definitions

Definition


Markings can be defined in boating terms as the designations that must be displayed on a boat as required by law. These may include hull numbers, official numbers, registration numbers, tabs, boat names, and hailing port designations. The marking process is also known as numbering or lettering.

Meaning


Markings are used by regulatory and enforcement agencies as the primary methods of identifying a particular boat. They are intended for registration, titling, safety, and security purposes.

Context


State and federal agencies both have their own different requirements when it comes to boat markings. These are set forth in specific regulations that must be strictly observed in order to avoid penalties.

Conclusion


At the time of registration or documentation, owners will typically receive a set of instructions on how to go about marking the subject boat. Additional information about these requirements can also be found in the WikiTags for this page and throughout BoatWiki.
