You or someone else will want to look at the hull ID number
(HIN). It is located on the starboard side of the transom just below the gunwale. The manufacturers code is part of the HIN.
The HIN is also listed in the vessels registration
papers. It is the automotive equivalent of the VIN. All US manufactured or imported boats since 1972 have a HIN.
The MC in the registration
numbers designates it as a Michigan registered boat. Information relating to a boats registration number (the number on the bow) is kept confidential by the state of registration, unlike federal registration (documentation) which is public information.
