I like the name. Some people might spell it differently but who cares.

I'd keep the palm trees to either side of the name to avoid confusion, but it doesn't really matter. Its your boat and your choice.

Not sure about the laws where y'all live, but there are no laws in Texas governing the name of a boat. LEO cannot just write a citation "if they want to." They only thing they can issue a ticket for is not displaying your state registration numbers and decal. And for USCG documented boats, all you have to display is the registration sticker, the numbers aren't required.

Same here. I don't have a name written on my boat. Most boats don't.

Only the registration numbers are required here.

Well, that sums up the problem pretty well. It's all about you, and not at all about how you interact with others, and what your responsibilities are as a captain.

It may be commonly disregarded, but even in Texas you are still subject to federal law. As someone involved in law enforcement, you surely already know this. And the laws around documented boats are federal laws. CFR 46, Vol 2, Part 67 to be specific. And to quote from 67.123 concerning marking of the boat's name, it "must be made in clearly legible letters of the Latin alphabet or Arabic or Roman numerals not less than four inches in height".


I didn't bring up the laws in my original post because I figured that common courtesy and good seamanship would be all the reason anyone would need to at least make an effort to have a "clearly legible" name on their boat.


Now if you remove the boat from documentation and only state register it, then there are no display requirements on the boat's name, and instead they are on the registration bow numbers. Anything you do for a name is decorative only, and can be whatever you want.

This has been quoted...

Not until his mention of Chinese did it not meet the requirement unless it wasnt 4" high....as I think I posted before....contrast wasn't good until his all black version.


Well....at least I had no trouble reading it. The USCG doesn't get into font or pronunciation of it either.


To help a little with the black version...the palm trees could be shorter and finer in texture compared to the name....it would help the 4 letters punch a bit more.

On the stern of a 60’ Nordhavn - “Ship Faced” with the dinghy named”Piece of Ship”

BTW, Boku is ok, legibility could be better.

Guess that proves you only need money to own one.

I think it’s a great name: easy to say, easy to spell. As long as you get rid of the dots and the dash. Make life easy for yourself and anyone else by using a standard keyboard only.

I think the name “Boku” is unique, easy to say, and easy to read. All very good things.

I’m not a fan of the graphics. The first is simply a matter of my taste, which shouldn’t matter a bit to you. The second is that I think the graphics do make the boat name less legible than I would like. Legibility of my boat name is important to me. I want other boaters to be able to identify my boat when they need/want to.

If I overtake a boat with a name I can read from a few hundred yards back with my binoculars, I’ll call on VHF and ask if they want a slow pass. If they don’t have the radio on or if I cannot decipher their font I just go on by. That sometimes means bumping up the power from just below theoretical hull speed to just above to minimize the time spent side by side and results in a bigger wake. Recently I saw cursive script in black faded to grey on a soot stained transom! I tried to hail them by description but I guess their vhf was off.

You're right. Why bother. If I don't do things exactly as the internet says, then I shouldn't do anything at all right? Thanks! You've been a great help.

My responsibility as a captain is to make sure I don't hit you, you don't hit me, and my passengers and the general public around me are safe. That does not include outfitting my boat as the internet sees fit.
