If after creating your account you received an invalid HIN message, please follow the steps below:
1. A Hull Identification Number (HIN) contains 12 digits, so check if your HIN consists in 12 digits. The only way a HIN is longer than 12 digits is if your boat is older than 1972.
2. Make sure you are getting the HIN from the back of the vessel, affixed to the rear of the transom on the upper right corner.
3. If you bought the boat from another owner, contact the owner of the boat to guarantee you have the right Hull Identification Number (HIN).
4. Check the Hull Identification Number (HIN) and make sure it follows the correct format. The first 3 characters of a HIN are usually the Manufacturers Index Code. The 5 numbers after the MIC (Manufacturers Index Code) are assigned according to the manufacturer without any set format to be followed, excluding the letters O, Q, and I.
If your boat was manufactured after August of 1984, the 9th character contains the information of the month (in letter format, A-L), then the last number of the year (10th character) that the boat received the certificate. The characters 11 and 12 contain the information about the model year of the boat and the 12th character is a letter (A-L) which represents the month, or MMYY format in which MM are the 2 digit month, and YY are the 2 digit year.
If your boat was manufactured between 1972 and 1984, the last 4 characters contain the information of the model year and month of the boat in MXXX format, 10 and 11 signify the model year and the 12th character is a letter A-L which signifies the month, or MMYY format in which MM equals the two digit month, and YY equals the two digit year.
If after following all these steps you were still not able to enter a valid Hull Identification Number (HIN) for your account, please email our Customer Service and we will be glad to assist you!
