Plate for ships register details on transom

Just had our rib registered and need to get plate made for the transom. Has anybody had to do this and if so what material did you use for the plate.

I'd have thought Redbay would soon sort that for you...?

I got our local woodcarver to chisel the numbers onto a teak plaque about 6" x 4" - not a lot of dosh, looks different and easy to maintain. It's fitted inside the boat where it can be seen easily. Been open to the elements for 7 years and still looks good :-)

Great idea. Where is it mounted and how did you secure it to the boat. Thanks

Last I heard they were boatbuilders, not signwriters.

But if they were, I'd get one that said "No Fishing!"

I was thinking Data plate....
Although I know Ribcraft will do etched signs "in house" if you need/want them

These guys will do them in teak, brass, stainless - whatever you need.

Have used them for these before - so they should know what you are talking about.

Plaque is bolted to blue locker cover with stainless allen bolts.

(We'd just dropped some ornithologists on Pladda and took the opportunity to collect some firewood -it being summer!)
