HIN
by: Mike

Hi Gemma,

By serial code do you mean the Hull Identification Number (HIN)?

If your boat was built before the 1970s, as mine was, then it wont have one.

It might have a Lloyds registration number on the main beam.

If she does have an HIN it should be on the outside of the transom above the waterline.

A boat built in the UK after 1998 should have a fourteen digit number.

The first two letters denoting the country of manufacture, then three for the code of the manufacturer, then the five for the serial number of the boat, the two for the month of construction and two fro the year of construction.

Prior to that serial numbers varied in style and position depending on the manufacturer.

It could be on the transom, in the cockpit or on a plate inside the cabin.
