Info on HIN Number

When our boat was built, the manufacture did not put the HIN number on the transom. We do have the numbers on the sales papers. Should we notify the USCG before placing the numbers on the boat? Any information will be greatly appreciated. Diane

No need to inform the Coast Guard.............HIN numbers are supposed to be "molded" into the gel coat located at the starboard transom area.
A previous repair may have covered the original HIN..........I think that as long as you have the paperwork that shows the HIN and you can cross it over to the documentation numbers, you will be OK.

Hin Number

I guess I didn't explain that we purchased the hull right from the factory. We are the original owners. The hin numbers was never put on the transom. Thanks for your reply. Diane

What year is the boat? Have you contacted the manufacturer?

I believe 1977 is when they started to mould in the numbers and if your vessel is 1976, that may explain a lot.
