Probably 75% of the boats in Florida
are not CG documented. Almost all of those have at least a name and some have a hailing port.
With FL registration
, you are only required to show registration numbers and current
tag. No name or hailing port.
CG documented boats are required to show the name and the hailing port. No registration numbers, but still must display tag.
Otherwise, naming your boat, really only helps with radio communications
and bridge tenders. You may name it anything you wish, and could change it anytime you want.
