New State Registration Tag Holders

--Blogpost written by Bob

As a federally documented vessel in Maryland waters, we have to display state registration tags near the bow of our vessel.  Previously, I displayed these at the base of the mast--technically it wasn't on the bow but it was never questioned.

I previously displayed my state registration decals
at the base of our mast as shown above.

While s/v Rainy Days was kept in Galesville, there was a nice Hinckley Bermuda 40 with teak registration tag holders on the bow pulpit.

I copied the idea from a nice old Hinckley Bermuda 40 in Galesville
but I changed the material to plastic to completely
eliminate the maintenance.

The above side view shows the similarity to the previous
photograph--only the materials have been changed.  Both 

designs use plastic clamp-on rail mounts from West Marine.

By removing a single cap screw on there inboard side, each tag holder
can be removed for ease of changing registration tags every year.

This was a nice little project as a break from some
of the larger projects I'm working on now.

Thanks for following our blog!
