I see lots of boats with those so like to believe they will stay on. But my experience is that the Florida registration sticker wouldn't stay on my old dinghy or my current one when it was brand new and I used the extra glue etc.

I am just commenting. My chaps have number on it and under that my dinghy has the numbers. Here in Florida whether you get a ticket appears to be how the lunar phase effects the FWC guy that day.

It's pretty much the same thing in Texas too. If they want to stop you, they can find an excuse. For me, the registration numbers on the board won't be one. When I was using the boatnumberplate.com system, the Texas sticker held poorly, and one time both didnt last the season. Sucks that replacement wasnt cheap either. If the decal washes off of the Fawcett dedicated square for it, I will be going the plate for the decal only.

More likely the issue will be the whole thing gets stolen. You know how hard it is to get a Tohatsu 20 hp short with manual start? I probably need to put some off-brand 7 hp sticker on the cowling!
