So you’ve just bought a boat and are absolutely dying to get it out on the water. However, there are a few important things you need to get out of the way first – the title, your registration, and the boat’s name!
Requirements for Boat Registration Numbers in Nevada
Once you receive your registration number from the Nevada Department of Wildlife, you’re going to have to decide how you’re going to put it on your boat. Nevada law requires you to display registration number (a Nevada Certificate of Number) and validation decals on your boat in order to legally operate the vessel on public waters.
However, there are some pretty strict guidelines you’ll need to follow when applying these decals. Your registration letters and numbers must:
Validation decals must be placed on each side of the vessel toward the stern of the registration number and within 6 inches of and in line with the number.
Now you can order individual lettering from some online shop or paint them on yourself, but what guarantee do you have that they’re going to contrast the way you need them to or that the paint won’t wear away in the water?
Vinyl graphics can make it easy to follow all these regulations and professional installation will make sure their application does not mar the beauty of your boat.
Naming Your Boat
This is maybe one of the most exciting things for new boat owners. Whether you’ve known what you wanted since you were a kid or have talked it over with the family, you’re going to want to display it proudly on your transom, stern or somewhere above deck.
Now you can paint it on, too, but maybe you’re not such an artist. Vinyl graphics can rescue here, too. If you use a professional shop, you can get a design professional to help you achieve the look you want and the install team can make sure everything is straight and precisely placed.
Stripes, Decals and Other Graphics
If you’re feeling really adventurous, you can add other kinds of graphics to your boat. Whether you want include your home port, highlight a real sleek line, add fancy decals, or create a unique graphic that gives your boat personality, vinyl graphics are the perfect solution. They won’t ruin the finish and can really give your boat a unique look.
