The Oregon charter boat license issued shall identify the applicant, the boat, whether or not the boat operates within 20 or less miles from shore, the license expiration and such other items as deemed appropriate by the Board. It shall be carried on board and made available upon demand of a peace officer;


The charter boat decals shall be of such size and color as designated by the Board and shall be displayed in any visually unobstructed location on the boat’s port and starboard cabin sides or windows, or in the case of an open boat, at or near the operator’s position, port and starboard, in as highly visible a location as possible.
