  • 12 On The Side of Crownies

    Why do I see the number 12 on many Crownline boats? I know it's not the length as I have seen it on 202's and 225's for sure. Tgough maybe for an anniversary year, but I have no clue. Applied at factory it seems. Anyone know?

    Iowa boat requires the boat's capacity displayed on the rear starboard side of the boat.

        In Iowa, it is a DNR registration requirement. That way DNR, Sheriff, or Corps of Engineers Water Patrol can see the boat's capacity for enforcement purposes.

        You may also see "OR" on some larger boats. That stands for Owner Responsibility, which means the capacity and number of people on board the boat is the responsibility of the boat owner. I think the owner has to do something during the registrationn process to be able to use the "OR" designation.

          Good to know. I have seen that and assumed it was in a rental fleet.
