Lordy...

Around $120 in Fremantle in 2002.

Clearly YMMV

Did that include the guy coming down to the boat to install it? From memory the paperwork for issuing of the HIN was about $120 but everyone I spoke to wanted buckets of money to actually come down and attach the little plate. And I was TOLD that installing it yourself is not an option. This was in 2012. When we did the trailer sailer in 2009 we just drove the boat on the trailer to the workshop that did the HIN and I think they charged about $250 in total.

Re: HIN

It was 2002 but maybe I still remember

He walked over from his office to the boat on the slip perhaps 80 metres.

Maybe the paperwork was $120 and maybe he charged some more but whatever, it wasn't a showstopper dollar wise. I was buying the boat at time and the transfer couldnot becompleted until the HIN was sorted.

Everyone was being really helpful, presumably because I was the first person in a year showing some interest in a 30+ year old plywood boat with rotting chainplates and a worn out petrol motor.

In fact, they were tripping over each other in being helpful , so maybe the price was discounted. The HIN provider, the broker and the chandelier(sp?) Worked out of the same building. The only outsider was the surveyor

Re: HIN

Maybe they were tipping their hat to your great taste in boats! But they do sound like a motivated and pragmatic team.


I find the whole price thing so variable and heaven help you if they figure out you are out of your depth, as I most certainly was when we bought the Swanson. More pucker-up moments in that month of my life than my entire teenage years.


Matt.


P.S. Reading the Tassie Cruising guide and dreaming.
