Affixing Numbers to Roll-Up Inflatable

I have a Zodiac Cadet 350 that I routinely roll up after use, and was wondering what the best methods are for affixing the registration numbers onto the boat. Stickers will just come off, tying a plate to the front hand holds will just make it flap around at speed, and glued on plates probably wont roll up well. So far my best idea is taping the plate on each time I go to take it out.... Does anyone have a better idea?

If you can afford it the best solution is to have them laser cut out of a patch in hypalon/PVC and glue on as you would for a patch...

Years ago when I used to take my boat to Windermere, I had my number plates on thin ply with one either side of the engine cowl. I had some draft excluder rubber on the inside of the ply to both protect the cowl and stop it from moving around with the front and back edges held closer together with nylon straps.
It didn't look great but it did the job and no stickers on the boat.

I have just stuck the vinyl square with the numbers on on either side of my outboard cowl not pretty but does the job . a friend made 2 number boards out of an old 25 litre square plastic water container he chopped the larger sides out stuck his numbers on and strapped them either side of the outboard with a couple of short bungees

Non-permanent plates are illegal per the DHS / USCG.

Your registration numbers must be glued, screwed, welded, or painted on to the vessel.

I like these: Boat Number Registration Plate for Inflatable Boats
