Yes, HIN is like a VIN on a car. It gives the date of manufacture, the model number, and the maker. But since this boat appears to be built in the UK now, it will not have a HIN embossed on the transom. Those didn't start there until late 90's.I guess there is a Porter and Haylett marking on the boat.
So what is a HIN? Hull ID number? Something like a VIN on a car?
Is there a place I can lookup these numbers online, like a car and see if it has a salvaged title or something?
