Number of certificates
(a) If a licensed dealer or manufacturer owns a vessel mainly used in the dealer's or manufacturer's business and held for sale and that otherwise is required to be numbered under this title, the dealer or manufacturer may apply to the Department for the issuance of as many dealer's or manufacturer's certificates of number as are required for the normal operation of business and as the Department authorizes.

Transfer of numbers between vessels

These numbers shall be used only on vessels demonstrated, tested, or owned by the manufacturer or dealer, and these numbers are not valid for use on the vessels when chartered, rented, or leased by the manufacturer or dealer.
Certificate applications
(c) Each application for the manufacturer's or dealer's certificates of number shall be on forms the Department approves and be accompanied by a fee of $24. The certificate of number issued under this section is valid for a period not to exceed 2 years and shall expire on December 31 of the calendar year following the year the certificate is issued.
