Welcome aboard!

Do you have any idea what year the Voyager was made? HIN's weren't mandatory until the mid-1970's, if I recall correctly. So it's entirely possible that your boat doesn't have an HIN.

I'm not familiar with California's laws - do you NEED to register the boat? Some states don't require registration of boats under 15' if they don't have an engine. I've often wondered what you do in those cases, because it's nearly impossible to track down the previous owners. I think I'd call again, or spend some time at a DMV that's near the water. The folks there are more likely to have come across boat registrations than at the inland DMV's. You can always ask for a manager, too.

Good luck!
