If it's on the bottom, that's going to be hard to do.

I think having the name on the visible part of the dinghy or on something hung from the flybridge meets the intent of the law if not the letter.

The regulations don't require the name and hailing port to be displayed on the stern of a recreational boat, just that they be displayed on some visible portion of the hull.
