We do not have to desplay any numbers outside our boat just the documented number inside somewhere in 3 inch letters that can not be removed, our numbers are on the bulkhead teak under salon cusions in perminate marker. It did take about 6 months for the Coast Guard to send us the final documentation papers.
All markings must be at least 4" high. The boat's name does not have to be 10" high. Currently the CG Vessel Documentation Center is processing applications in ten weeks. If you look up the requirements for the number on your vessel, you'll find that a number in permanant marker won't pass muster.

We moored about 100 ft from a CG station and had them do a Safety inspection this spring and they said that Perminate marker soked into the bulkhead teak behind the salon cushon was very good, they did say that it would not be good if the wood was varnished or if it was fiberglass.
