Someone mentioned putting "Tender To xxxxx" on the dingy. First that does not satisfy the marking regulations...AND.....second, it invites theft. If you go ashore in a dingy that tells everyone on shore which boat is now vacant, you are asking for your boat to be either stolen or in the lesser case, ransacked and valuables removed.

I dont want my dingy to point back to my empty boat in any way, not even color matched.

They more than make up for it with their sales of vinyl transom and side board lettering.

Oh, then they are not really free. They are priced into the transom art you had to buy to get the free ones, right?

You do not have to buy anything. Just have your dinghy registration with you and they have their printing machine do the rest.

Do you think they would do mine if I drove in from Texas with a TX number. I have relatives in Vista and might be out there soon. Would it help if I told them I was born in SD...LOL

We had our dinghy numbers replaced over the winter. They've held up great so far after 1 season.
