I see boats with the name, hailing port on the stern and State registration on the bow, so I assume they are not CG registered
or perhaps once were but are no longer.

Or the skipper thought it was "cool."

Ya never know.

The US government prohibits the display of state registration numbers on a USCG documented vessels. Registration stickers are OK, but not all states require displaying a sticker. California does not register USCG documented vessels, but they will be on the tax rolls.

"Tax rolls" is referring to what form of taxation in California? Our Florida tax is only the registration with the sticker which amounts to about $190 annually for our 41' boat & dinghy. Of course, Florida does take a sales tax on vessels purchased that remain in the state.

My P30 is named Grey Goose. On a whim, I reached out to see if the Grey Goose folks would provide or sell me any swag. Nothing yet (hah!) though I did find some nice 'official' Grey Goose hats and golfshirts on eBay. I don't think you have anything to worry about unless you're ahem... borrowing the dog head logo from them. It might be an issue if your boat were named McDonalds and featured 2 golden arches, or perhaps had a pumpout boat named Chipotle...

Each California county assesses annual property taxes on our type of boat as of January 1 of each year. (If one sells their boat after January 1, they are still liable for tax payment that year.) Tax rate depends on location, and the amount of tax is based on the boat's assessed value. USCG documented or state registered, it does not matter. (California does not register USCG-documented boats.)

My suggestion would be to make sure your lettering does not infringe on any trademarks or copyrights that they own. No one wants a cease and desist letter.
I think The Black Dog in Weymouth may have something to say about that, if they pursue such nonsense.

It dates back to the 1500's.

Black Dog Weymouth - The best Pub in Weymouth

eta: There is a large Italian cured ham business that got the EU to try and shut down a cured ham maker in Carmarthen, West Wales. When the process and antiquity was delved, it became apparent that the rather large Italian cured ham business, probably stole the recipe from the ancestors of the people curing ham in Carmarthen.

Things went very quiet about the matter after.

I can't decide which of the 3 looks best, as the eye patch looks good in all of them (it looks like it's the same as my eye patch - I did lose one a couple of days ago, did the dog find it?).

Re: Pick a lettering design....

Here is what it looked like.

The color difference is my mistake. To save money I reused an old home port sticker.
