I recently bought a 1973 Tartan 30, hull# 103 (or so I think. Read on ...). I'm now trying to initiate an insurance
policy for it and I'm running into a problem. The insurance
company is insisting that all boat made after 1972 have a 12 digit HIN, yet the brass plate on mine just says simply "Hull Number 103". That's also all the title and registration
reflect. Insurance company is saying I need to either:
1. Find the 12 digit HIN, or
2. Prove to them that this 1973 wasn't issued a 12 digit HIN, or
3. Provide evidence that this boat is actually a 1972 or earlier.
Have any of you other T30 owners run into this?
Is there another ID plate hidden somewhere on the T30? (I've searched everywhere)
Anybody know how I can find out which hull
numbers were made in which year (I've searched the web)?
Any other words of wisdom you can offer me (besides "don't hit anyone till you're insured")?
