Just like all other states South Dakota does require identifying registration numbers on the forward bow of the boat. This page provides some guidance how to purchase those.
We'll guide you through the process of creating South Dakota boat numbers when you click design now. Each state has specific verbiage as to their requirements. See the South Dakota specific section below. The general requirements for boat registrations numbers are as follows:
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!). South Dakota has a nice boater guide book that everyone should review. The registration information portion is located Here.
South Dakota specifies that boat numbers be placed on the forward portion of the boat (the bow) on both sides.
Our south dakota number kits are solid as a pair with 2.
Your vinyl lettering is cut, weeded, and coated in a transfer tape ready to install. Installation instructions are located here. We have many optional installation accessories located in our accessories section.
Excellent graphics. The ones I ordered have to applied to a dry surface. Nothing could be easier.
No real instructions came and since the little bottles and pen were kind of expensive it would have been nice. Came out nice though.
The decal was very easy to put on, and it looks great! We ordered the dome lettering and could not be happier. It makes our runabout look snazzy.
These stickers were really good quality and easy to put on. The colors are vibrant and well defined lines. They are very attractive.
I loved playing around with the many different combinations of ways to make your words. The decal came fast. I messed up one word so they sent me a replacement for a fraction of what it would cost to order another. I love how it looks.
Love my new decal! Delivered fast and it looks great.
Fantastic quality and made very tough
Exceptional quality and service!
Very easy and clean installation
Came out great! I got the hull numbers in reflective white, which are crisp and snowy in daylight and provide extra visibility to my little skiff after dark. Uploaded a custom font for the boat name, this was the only site I saw that accommodated such. My only quibbles are that I ordered 3" spacing on the hull number trying to end up with 2", as the preview made it look like the selected spacing was affected by the font; it was.in fact spaced exactly 3". I should have asked. I just cut between the sections and placed them manually. Secondly, the decal sheets are cut free with a scissors, and not some sort of cutting tool, so the edge of the sheet is of no use for placement. The application fluid, however, works great, and gives some ability to fine tune everything.
