The second [identical] HIN is generally always hidden inside so that identification can be possible even if the outside has been damaged or vandalized.

Always a good idea to check the HIN not only for the true builder but also to confirm the build year and the model year of the boat. Originally Posted by JayCall. Originally Posted by Cavalier. Hi, You should always be able to find 2 HINs on a boat.

Welcome to the Kahn Laboratory
The below turned out not to be a Oyster 54 , regardless of what the HIN stated! A pretty safe bet that Oyster never dabbled in that particular shade of gelcoat. At night we were stained by dew, and shamed into pettiness by the innumerable silences of stars. Re: How to I.

Join Date: Nov Thanks for the info! I assume the starboard "outside" HIN is small, meaning I may have to have my face in front of it. I also assume the number may be on a small plate or imprinted into the fiberglass which could be unreadable if painted. Images: I raised the price 40k! Originally Posted by Vyndance II.

Thanks again for all your hard work. They say that it will take about 50, articles to cover the full scope that they have envisioned for the website. They have over 10, articles so far and that's doing pretty well, but it could take several years to get the rest. I also noticed that many of the Main Topic Pages and some of the article pages are still in the rough draft stage.
But what I can't figure out is why anyone would spend the time writing informative in depth articles just to give away free to this website for publication? What's in it for them? Writing such articles helps establish them as knowledgeable professionals. After all, this website was originally created by a school for marine technicians and marine surveyors. The website is growing in content every day. They even had to move to a bigger, more powerful server on October 15, because the website's traffic has been growing exponentially.
I use the topic pages on the right sidebar to browse around the website. It's like a Junior Woodchucks' Guidebook for Boaters. What a deal! I really love being part of this "Everything About Boats" community and help provide thousands of helpful articles free to the public. I think that I'll sit down right now and write an article about my experiences boating with my uncle. Well, I think it stinks. Furthermore, I don't even own a boat.
And I wouldn't have a boat even if someone gave me one. Boats are a waste of money and time and energy and money! They're just a hole in the water you pour money into. If you gave me a boat, I'd sell it quicker then you could say Baggywrinkle. Bah humbug.
