Excerpt from Maryland Boat Regulations
The vessel number issued to a MD titled vessel must be painted on or otherwise permanently attached to each side of the forward half of the vessel (the bow). No other number can be displayed near the vessel number.

    Display of Numbers and Validation Decals
  • Reading from left to right
  • Plain vertical block characters 3" high or larger
  • Contrasting color to the boat hull or background
  • Placed as high above the waterline as practical
  • Letters separated from numbers by hyphens or spaces.
The registration decal set (two 3" x 3"decals) and the 3" round dealer-issued temporary decals must be displayed within 3" of the vessel number. Vessels must display boat number and current decals, and have the registration card on board and available for inspection whenever the boat is in use.
