WAC 308-93-140

Decals—Placement, size, and color.

(1) Where do I place the decals I receive when I register my vessel in Washington? Decals must be placed on the vessel for which they were assigned. Decals must be affixed on (see illustration):
(a) Each side of the forward half of the vessel above the water line so it is easily visible for law enforcement; and
(b) Within six inches aft of, and directly on line with, the vessel registration number as provided by WAC 308-93-145(3).
(c) For documented vessels, one decal must be affixed to each side of the forward half of the vessel for which it was assigned so it is easily visible for law enforcement.
(2) What do the vessel decals look like that are issued by the department? In accordance with 33 Code of Federal Regulations (C.F.R.), vessel decals are approximately three inches square. The years in which validation decals expire must be indicated by the colors blue, international orange, green, and red, in rotation beginning with blue for decals that expired in 1985.
(3) Which vessel decal shall be displayed? To legally own or operate your vessel on Washington waters, you must only display the decal that shows your vessel is registered for the current registration year.
