Order accuracy

If you have any doubt about the model year, please contact the boat manufacture, your boat dealer or our customer service to help determine the correct model information.

To help determine this on your own, locate your boats HIN (HULL Identification Number). The HIN is 12 characters long and is composed of multiple sections depending on the format being used. has a proprietary technology that enables you to decode the information contained in the HIN or CIN. Commonly, boat manufacturers added additional characters to the HIN but separated from the HIN by a hyphen.

The HIN is normally located in several locations on a boat, but the most common places are:

  • On the transom on top of the load waterline. This is sometimes on the upper starboard quadrant.
  • If there is not transom, the HIN can be on the starboard side at the aft end of the hull that bears the rudder or steering device.
