Sorry for the Dumb A$$ Question however:

Can someone show me the proper positoning for the Registration Sticker and the Registration Number for a 16' boat here in TX.

I was looking at pictures of boats and it looks like the Registration Sticker goes in front of the TX on the Starboard Side and After the complete number on the Port Side.
 
Example:
 
Sticker  TX 7890 AY  (Starboard)
 
TX 7890 AY Sticker (Port)
 
I think this is correct?

i copied this for you from the TPWD website:  :)

Display of Your Number
The number must be painted on, or otherwise attached to each side of the vessel, near the bow, in such position as to provide easy identification.
The number shall read from left to right, be in block characters of good proportion not less than three inches in height and be of a color that contrasts with the background.
The numerals must be separated from the prefix and the suffix by hyphens or equivalent spaces such as the following example: TX 0123 AB and TX-0123-AB.
The validation decal must be affixed in a line with and three (3) inches towards the rear of the boat from the registration number.
USCG Documented Vessels:

May display ONLY the Validation Decal (not the Registration Number) on both sides of the bow of the vessel and maintain current USCG Documentation
