I'm not sure in which state you're registering the boat. In Virginia it can be above or below as long as it's visible and meets the other requirements. I notice most boats have the numbers below the rail, but some have it above.

Full Throttle has a good point about checking your state's requirements.  On older hulls, the front flares inward starting just under the rub rail.  The flat area just above the rail provides a good area for the numbers that is very visible.  The one thing to think of;  if marine patrol or Coast Guard has a difficult time seeing the numbers, it is an invitation for them to pull up and start asking questions.
