Re: What is this?

In the US, the HIN would have been on the starboard corner of the transom if the boat was built after 1982. I believe the US was following international convention on that but have no idea what or when that might apply to boats built elsewhere.

A guide to HIN from one of our government agencies in the US.

On something that small I would not expect to find a HIN inside the boat. A HIN is sometimes ground off, or rendered illegible by layers of paint, so examine the location (pictures in the PDF) carefully.

There was no registration, title, or other numbered paperwork given to you when you bought the boat?
