Been playing with photoshop and even 50mm letters is a bit much

I dont have it official, but someone at Amsa told me they are not that fussy on recreational vessels. The requirement is written for large vessels commerical vessels. I was asking because i wanted to reduce mine to 80mm being state size. But in the end i kept my 100mm internal marking which is carved in wood. But no one examines the boat.

Re: Registering a yacht in Australia

On the transom the letters were as specified but inside I didn't bother with LOA.

Re: Registering a yacht in Australia

I used 75 mm letters for the name on the bows and inside I used 25 mm letters for ON & LOA engraved on a SS plate that was then riveted to the bulkhead. This was on a 30' boat and the person who signed the marking note was happy. Mind you, it was awhile ago - sometime in the '80s...

Re: Registering a yacht in Australia

Mine were done at 40mm cut in black and white plastic and glued to the bulkhead.

Re: Registering a yacht in Australia

My boat's never had the bulkhead marking. Planning to add one as we are currently freshening the insides up. Having said that, there's a form AMSA should have issued you that requires a witness to verify you have marked the vessel up correctly. The witness can be basically anyone.

Re: Registering a yacht in Australia

I rather like ours, carved into the main forward deck beam. Very "salty".

Sent from my iPhone so apologies for weird autocorrect typos.
Very funny Scotty, now beam down my clothes.

Re: Registering a yacht in Australia

My rego process has been finished for a while now, but I'm waiting on my father to send me the rego papers.

A few weeks back my cousin bought an Ovni in Asia and now I'm giving my "expert advice" to help him through his registration process.

BTW I was very happy that AMSA accepted my Swedish VHF licence for getting an MMSI, saved a lot of hassle, although the stupidity that you cannot reprogram the VHF MMSI yourself is going to cause a pain when I'm next on board
