Registration numbers remain with the vessel permanently. Documented vessels Federal regulations prohibit the display of the WN registration number on vessels documented with the U.S. Coast Guard. You also must meet all Washington Stateregistration requirements. Display state registration decals on the forward half of the vessel so they are easily visible or law enforcement.
