State Numbering System

WikiTagsWikiShare


BoatWiki - Definitions

Definition


The state numbering system can be described as a set of prescribed standards for state boat registration numbering and certifications as set forth by the federal government. They deal with the assignment of registration numbers, installation thereof, tabbing and the issuance of registration certificates. Such rules have now been adopted by virtually all of the states and U.S. Territories.

Meaning


The numbering system facilitates a uniform method for the configuration of registration numbers and the manner in which they must be affixed to a boat. The same applies to tabs or stickers which serve as evidence of validity. It also prescribes the basic type of information that must be shown on a certificate of registration which is formally known as a certificate of numbering.

Context


Although the assignment and installation regulations for registration numbers are the same in every state, the registration certificates may vary widely. In fact some jurisdictions will only issue small registration cards. However, the information contained therein is basically the same. Although the colors may vary, tabbing remains in conformity. Vessels that are currently documented are also state registered in some jurisdictions, but they may not display the registration numbers.

Conclusion


Boaters should become familiar with numbering and marking requirements in order to avoid citations. More information can be found in the above WikiTags and throughout the pages of BoatWiki.
