Kentucky Boat Registration Lettering

Kentucky offers some of the nicest lakes in the country, but don't find yourself being cited for lack of registration numbers! We've put together a Kentucky boat guide for lettering your boat. Please read on below.

General information about numbers

We'll guide you through the process of creating Kentucky boat numbers when you click design now. Each state has specific verbiage as to their requirements. See the Kentucky specific section below. The general requirements for boat registrations numbers are as follows:

  • A minimum of 3" letter height
  • A block style font such as (impact or arial black)
  • Generally located on the forward hull portion of the boat next to the DNR tag
  • A contrasting color to base color of your boat.
  • Letters separated by a space or a dash (-)

Kentucky Specific Registration Laws

Please review your state specific requirements before purchasing identification decals as they do vary from state to state. Our designer is setup to comply with the general requirements above. If you require a specific requirement not in our designer, just leave a comment at checkout and we'll adust your design (no big deal!). Kentucky state DNR has put together a helpful pdf that includes all the information you need to know about registration placement. Please click this link Here.

Placement Information

Kentucky specifies that boat numbers be placed on the forward portion of the boat (the bow) on both sides.

Number Kits are Standard

Our kentucky number kits are solid as a pair with 2.
