Re: Boat stamps

I also list the Masters name on the stamp. I've used on customs import documents and seemed to make everyone very happy.

I was passing out "home made" boat cards (PC and card stock) but I just got 500 cards through VistaPrint for $20. It took just a few minutes to design the card uploading my own artwork.

My choice was to not provide too much personal information so it's just our names, home port and e-mail address. I can always write a phone number on the back.

Re: Boat stamps

We had one made for fun. We have never needed it but have used it a lot. It is particularly good when you get a guest book from a village and you can stamp it.

We had a good experience with rstamp.com

Ours looks like this:

I designed ours, rendered it to a PDF format and sent it to a stamp maker. Cost about 30
Thanks, all you guys are the best!

Re: Boat stamps

I recommend vessel name, ON, home Port, and maybe masters first initial and last name. Other than that it's information that can be given. I don't think a HIN should be on there as that's supposed to be vessel social security number, it's in obscure places for a reason. Not that it can cause harm by giving it out but it's a relatively secure number. Plus too much on a stamp and it's either cluttered and busy or getting too big. But that's me. The stamp on the OSV I'm running is just the name and the vessel ON in a very simple two line stamp.

The HIN shall be located where it is clearly visible when the vessel is in the water, namely, on the upper starboard quarter of the outside surface of the transom or if the vessel has no transom, on the uppermost starboard side at the aft end of the hull.

The HIN must also be marked in a second location on the hull (since 1984), that is either beneath a fitting or an item of hardware or that is on the interior of the vessel and unexposed.
The purpose of the 2nd concealed HIN is to help authorities identify your boat if a thief or vandals remove or damage the primary HIN on the transom.

It's on the starboard transom, visible to anyone who looks. Not very secure.

Ah, thanks for the clarification.. I thought the concealed one was for sensitive reasons. Great, well in that case I could see it on the stamp. Nice, appreciate that!

Re: Boat stamps

We have a British built boat, no hull marking as far as I can tell.

I was told the HIN was an Americn thing only.

No. Only very small or almost semi backyard builders in the UK didn't affix a HIN. Since the introduction of the RCD. It is a requirement

Dave,

Any idea when that was? We were built around 1982.

From 1972 US & Cdn Federal regulations required every recreational boat manufacturer to assign a HIN to each vessel built.

From June 1998, the European Recreational Craft Directive required that every new boat sold or put into service in the EU to have a HIN displayed conforming to the Directive. The European RCD required that the 12 Character HIN also displayed a 2 Character Country code prefix defining the Country of Origin. The Country Code prefix to conform to ISO3166.

From 1 January 2006 the European Recreational Directive was amended and the HIN renamed CIN (Craft Identification Number) for the EU market. Apart from the name, the CIN retains the same 2+12 Character format.

The USA & Canada retain the name HIN.
