Yup that's my situation. So I have name boards on the forward 1/3 of the hull.
Not sure if that will satisfy the USCG but, .....

Realistically...

I don't intend to test this theory, but I'm pretty sure one could use the craziest multi-colored 'cursive' writing available for the transom name, and use "Pork & Bean, BFE" for the hailing port, and never get a comment from the USCG. Unless you pissed them off and they were just looking for a random reason to write you up. Has anyone been scolded or fined for non-compliant transom info? In 45+ years of boating I've never heard anyone mention it.

It doesn't ask for street address. Just city and state. However, you could make your PO Box number your name.

The place and state are not there for location purposes, but are there to distinguish you from all the other boats with the same name. Knowing that as the purpose, not saying where you are really from, then the more unusual or off the beaten boating path, would actually meet the objective better. If you choose a common location like Miami, there may be several more boats with the same name and place. However, if you chose Accident, Maryland or Experiment, Georgia or Big Arm, Montana, you'll likely be unique.

Wifey B: I wonder what would happen if you submitted these. I know the name of the boat can't be lewd but what about the place? These are all legit places.

Some states have more than others. I think PA wins with Intercourse, Blue Ball, Big Beaver, Lickdale, Rough and Ready, and Virginville. NC just has Climax. Love Valley, Lizard Lick, Engelhard, Hookerton, and Forbush. Other faves would be Fingerville and Sugar Tit, SC, Sweet Lips, TN, Honeyville, Utah, Assawoman, VA, Nutterville, WV, Spooner and Spread Eagle, WI, Teton Village, WY (only makes sense if you know French translation), Hooker and Dripping Springs, OK, Effingham, NH, Conception, MO. Michigan seems to like anatomy with Colon and Dick. Idaho is weird with Cream Can Junction and Dickshooter. Many more to choose from.

I am pretty sure my boat's name, Kinja, is unique or near so for pleasure boats in this part of the world.

Yes, indeed. You left out Big Bone, Ky (not far from Big Bone Lick State Park).

It is named after an island in Virgin Islands, I am told.
There is an organization of the same name. Their motto is "understanding through discussion." That seems to give woman hope. Alas, it is, to me false hope. LOL
I have also been told by someone from the islands, it also means Drug Lord.
LOL That one I can do without.

B/B, we share different philosophies on many subjects, of that there is no doubt, but from the deepest part of my heart, this post has to be among the best responses on a subject in a long long while, I have not stopped laughing and am going to highlight this and post to many boating friends. Great post, truly

Wifey B: People try to sneak stuff on personalized license plates all the time. It's almost like a game to see if the person approving the name will catch it.

Here are some for you.

It is only a matter of time before the goodie two shoes moral police start trying to change the names to something "vanilla"
If it is the state, they better gear up for a battle with the Feds over the documented vessels.

Wonderful post, Wifey B.

Dan – they’ve been at it for a long time. I was up in Idaho in the late 60s when the USGS unilaterally decided to change the Oregon historic place name “Whorehouse Meadow” to “Naughty Girl Meadow” on maps. In 1972, Oregon kicked this up to the USGS in DC. From the minutes: “The [federal] Board has not received sufficient evidence to warrant a decision, but feels that approval of the name endorsed by the Oregon Board would not be in keeping with its general policy of not approving names which might be considered objectionable by a large segment of the public.”

You need to understand that Harney County, in southeast Oregon, ain’t Portlandia – larger land area than either MA, VT, NH, NJ, CT, DL, or RI. With a population of 7,200 (2015). They fought! It took until 1982 for the USGS Board (after 9 months) to vote “to give official recognition to a name reported to be in established local use.” As far as I know, it’s still Whorehouse Meadow.

On another note, I find that Canadians may have a corner on picturesque place names. My personal favorite: Dildo, Newfoundland. Sitting at the confluence of Dildo Creek with Dildo Arm, east of the Dildo Islands and Spread Eagle Bay.

HaHa Dan,
I would submit that the name of the port where the boat is moored is the only acceptable thing under the name of the boat. And if one feels like adding more perhaps the slip # would be the only option.

One of the previous owners did this and we haven't seen a need to change it (except the hailing port).

Where the boat is moored has nothing to do with the hailing port.
