The HIN should be somewhere on the starboard top side of the transom just under the rubrail, either in the form of a reverse Dymo Label maker type sticker cast into the gelcoat or a small aluminum tag pop riveted to the transom in the same location.

If you're looking at the back of the boat, it should be just under the rub rail on the right hand side. Ours is hard to see and is easier to feel for it.

Should be on RH (starboard, drivers) side of the transom (rear of the boat, boot) just below the rubrail. :D

It should be on a registration or a MSO or a TITLE

I did too!
If it was done with a label maker into the gelcoat in 76, then it would be the same in '80 and would look something like this,

yeh as i suspected i was looking all around that area and didnt see anything apart from 3 small drilled holes that looked like a plate of some description used to be fixed there.. I'll have another good look tomorrow in the daylight and post a pic of the findings but it may have been some form of fixed on plate that is now missing :(

over here in the uk we dont get title's or registration doc's with boats unless purchased new..
used sales etc.. just get a receipt of sale from the seller..

Interesting :confused: is the boat hot? I mean here in the states the first thing a thief tries to get rid of is the ID#'s

I'm kidding but how do they track thefts I'm wondering?

You don't have any paper work on it? Registration or pink slip

the answer to that one is "they dont"

cars, bikes etc.. yes get a registration document or "title" ad must be transfered to new owner..

as boats dont have to be registered or likewise arent taxed by the government theres no need so it just doesnt happen if the original owner or used owners lose the paperwork it doesnt really matter as theres no way you can get duplicate copies...
its the same for off road motorcycles

likewise with insurance.... it doesnt need to be legally insured for use on inland lakes at all, its up to owners discretion...

Better hope it's not if it's the only one in the UK!!

All this stuff about no registration, tax, insurance is almost unimaginable.

Theres got to be another way to figure it out...

Original trailer?? There might be a VIN on that somewhere.

Per the US Coast Guard:

the location of the secondary hull identification numbers (HIN’s) of boat manufacturers
(33 CFR Part 181 )requires a secondary hull identification number (HIN) to be affixed
to each boat manufactured after August 1st, 1984 in an unexposed interior portion of recreational
vessels (and should be located under fixed equipment or in a generally unreachable location)

The above is not a direct quote, but hopefully you get the idea.

Looks like your boat is pre 1984 so i am guessing this doesn't apply.
