How do I need to display my annual launch sticker? 

The annual boat launch sticker must be permanently affixed to the backside of the trailer winch post. If the design of your trailer prohibits the clear view of the sticker, the sticker should be placed on the left side of the winch post in a visible location. Stickers not permanently affixed or not displayed properly are invalid and may result in a fine being issued.
