Hi Eliza and Shane,
Your best bet would be to phone Peter Skinner the Qld Measurer. Peter can then explain and advise. His phone number is 07) 5590 4313.

On my boat, builder Phil Johnson used a nail punch about 3 to 4 mm dia (the type with a hollow point) to punch the number into the keel in indentations about 6 mm apart. Before varnishing by the look of it!
