Registration number location

Can't find the registration number on our Alan Pape cutter. She was built around 1987 by CMC in Looes, England. We have had her for about three years now and I'm painfully familiar with her interior, yet I have yet to find this number.

Any suggestions on where to look?

I've heard it said the number shoul be engraved on the " main beam". What would you interpret that to be on a steel boat?

If she was built in the UK... unless she was built to Lloyds spec and on the Part 1 register... she'd likely have had no mark... apart from the peel and stick on type used for the SSR.
Have you tried the builders..?

Re: Registration number location

Out of business.

I take it that such permanent marking is a US requirement, not British?

Re: Registration number location

A boats registration number and the Official Number are two different things.

In the US an Official Number is required for federally documented vessels. The Official Number does not necessarily have to be on a main beam. On an aluminum boat I have mine on the inside of a hull plate under the after deck. It does have to be in a "prominent place" though, basically meaning not hard to find.

Registration numbers are typically found on the bow of boats registered with a state.
