Required on all powered recreational boats, with some limited exceptions, to provide safety information for the boat user.
Our stocked supply of blank ABP plates are available for immediate dispatch. Blank ABP plates can be hand engraved onsite to include the required information to complete the plate. ABP plates have the text and graphics embedded into the sapphire hard anodic layer. The plates will resist salt water, outdoor exposure, abrasion, chipping and most industrial solvents and chemicals.
When installing the ABP shall be readily visible to the operator of the boat when getting the boat underway, preferably in the cockpit or near the steering position.
The ABP is required in addition to the HIN plate. It may identify the boat by either HIN number or build date and does not replace the HIN plate. Both blank and customisable HIN plates are also available for purchase.
