Hull Indentification Number

What information can be obtained from the HIN, such as hull #, year built, etc. Sorry if this has already been asked.
Thanks,
Jake

Hull Indentification Number

Jakeman44,

Denr provides useless information as usual. Just childish, immature ranting. What''s new.
Anyway.....why would all HIN''s have the #''s "143" on everyboat.

The first 3 Digits are the manufacturing ID code (MIC).

The next 5 digits are the Hull Serial number.

The next 4 digits are the Month/Year Date
of certification or manufacture . JAN-A, FEB-B, MAR-C, APR-D, MAY-E, JUN-F, JUL-G, AUG -H, SEP-I, OCT-J, NOV-K, DEC-L.

The last 4 digits are set up a little different if the boat was manufactured before Aug, 1984, but basically the first 2 digits are the Date of certification or manufacture and the last 2 digits are the Model Year of the boat

The Coast Guard maintains a searchable database of MICs if you want to check yours out go here http://www.uscgboating.org/mf/mf_srchMIC.ASP.

tondelayo29 is on a distinguished road
Hull Indentification Number

My HIN # contains a wealth of information.
#1 the first 3 letters YCS = Yacht Constructors (the name of the boat builder), #2 the next 2 digits = the boat length (29''),
#3 the following three digits = the # of hull moldings to that point,
#4 and final 4 digits = the hull molding date.

Now keep in mind my boat is a custom built Cascade 29 and may be somewhat different than standard production boats. But, I thought it was very interesting when I found out what it all ment.

John
