Hull Identification Number

The hull identification number (HIN) is the boat’s serial number. Boats built since 1972 are required to have a Hull Identification Number (HIN) permanently attached to the transom on the starboard side above the waterline. This number is a serial number exclusive to your boat and is necessary to title and register it. You should record this number in a safe place. In case of theft it may help identify your boat.
