The United States Coast Guard has established a universal system of numerically identifying vessels by using a hull identification number or HIN.
9 This number identifies your boat's manufacturer, boat model, hull number, month, and year of manufacture. The HIN is found on a metal plate affixed to your boat's starboard side just below the rub rail on the transom near the vertical edge of the chine. The HIN consists of 12 alpha and numeric characters. It is recommended that you locate and write down the HIN for future reference. It can be especially useful when buying boat insurance and ordering parts. A second HIN number is found in a hidden location. This second HIN is useful to authorities if for example the boat is stolen and the original transom HIN is modified or eliminated. Vessel Information Sheet_____. It is recommended that you fill out the information on the following page. It will supply vital statistics on your vessel. Make a copy of the data for safe keeping at home.

If you change your plans, be sure to notify this person. Make copies of the float plan included in this owner 's MANUAL for each time you go boating.
