    Boat Registration Lettering...FZR

    Hey all,

    Its getting time for me to get my ski registered here in OH, and I was wondering about letter placement as well as color and font. Id really like to see some photos of your all's skis of how you did your placement. I have the Black and Lime Green 2011 FZS, so if you have that color setup I'd appreciate seeing yours, but all are welcome of course Also put a little note in there about where you got the letters too would really be helpful!

    You all have seen before prolly, but heres mine:

    It's pretty simple, really. Use a font and contrasting color that will draw as little attention from the water patrol as possible. I don't like to give them excuses to F with me. It needs to be 3" tall and easily read, on the front side above the rub rail. There are hundreds of places to get custom numbers, and there's not a lot of difference. Look up the OH rules and you'll see they don't give a lot of flexibility. Anything beyond that and you're at the mercy of the local patrol. I've used Hardline Products for years and never had them questioned. They look OK, and there's enough to do a couple of boats.

    Here's what I did. These are the black letters that yamaha sells. I think the block style looks good on the FZ.

    Also on a side note, I've seen reg numbers placed below the rubrail. It looks good but I think it might be illegal depending on the state you live in.

    Lots of colors, designs and fonts to choose from and a preview of how your numbers will look on a background color of your choice.
