Boat Registration Numbers for California
Create boat registration numbers for California right here! We have the tools to create your own registration letters and order online.
California is one of those states that is great to boat in nearly year a round if you live far enough in the south. The beaches are nice along with being able to go out into the ocean if you choose. You can also pick from one of the many pristine lakes in the area. From San Diego to San Francisco you will be able to find a lake go head out and boat on. In CA make sure your boat is registered and has a nice set of registration numbers on it!
Any motorized boat in California must contain boat registration numbers on the hull of the boat. You will find that this information can vary slightly by state. In short most states require that the registration letters be no less than 3 inches tall and in block lettering. This will ensure compliance with local laws.
Do I need to buy 2?
All of our California boat registration numbers are sold by the pair! That means the price you see is for the pair of numbers. When you get a set you can put one on each side of the boat. Most people need a set so we go ahead and make that part of the price.
Are the letters pre spaced?
All of our lettering orders come pre spaced with application tape meaning you don't have to worry about applying each registration letter individually. The application tape covers the entire set of lettering like a big piece of masking tape allowing you to place it directly on your boat in one step.
What is considered block letters?
Block lettering is typically a font like arial black. Strong thick text that is not script styled. Check your own laws in California as to see if block lettering is a requirement for your boat. If it is we recommend not using one of our fancy fonts and sticking with a registration number compliant font such as arial black.
