Excerpt from North Carolina Boat Regulations:

Affixing Registration Numbers:
If a N.C. registration number already exists, you will only be replacing the decals. U.S. Coast Guard Documented Vessels may NOT display the N.C. registration number. Registration numbers must be legible by complying with the below instructions:

• Must be painted or permanently affixed on the forward half of both sides and no other number may be displayed on either side of the bow.
• Must be at least three inch block lettering and may be of any solid color so as to contrast with the bow of the vessel.
• The number must read from left to right as it appears on the registration card and the letters must be separated from the numerals by hyphens or by equivalent spaces.
