I don't know the situation in the 1930s, but currently vessels kept in the Norfolk Broads area for more than 28 days must be registered with the Broads Authority. Registered vessels should display the registration number where it can be easily read. See http://www.broads-authority.gov.uk/boating/owning-a-boat/tolls for details.
Other authorities have different rules and requirements. Most rivers and canals are controlled by the Canal and River Trust, whereas the rivers Thames and Medway are controlled by the Environment Agency.
I think boats on the lakes of the Lake District are registered with the local authority (council).
So all in all it depends on where you are.
