    I have had this boat for a year now but i want to insure it but when they ask my the make/model i don't have a clue. it doesn't say anything on it to give me a clue. Insurance said they can put it as unknown but i wanted to see if any one would know. I think this boat has been renovated before and that why i have no clue what it is. allot of people said it would be from the USA. BOAT= 16ft
    Motor info:
    Evinrude 1983 model 70hp.

    The major features
    curved slickcraft-like one-panel windshield (not really like slickcraft. those were not curved like this boat.)
    fiberglass deck riser with windshield very close to bow
    fake lapstrake in fiberglass
    don't match any USA boat I'm familiar with. I bet overseas.

    If made for or in the USA after the fall of 1973, it should have a HIN associated with it. Typically this is embossed on the upper right hand corner of the transom as you stand behind the boat and look. She has registration numbers, which suggests she's legal. What does the title saw? The registration? The HIN's prefix will be the manufacture's code and can be easily looked up. Post the numbers you have.

    I was trying to be humorous :)

    Have you tried tracing it thru your boat Registration Agency ? They should have a complete past history available.

    You are in the same problem as me,the waterways code is
    AU = Australia
    WWA 100971 = Waterways ID No Not the boat ID
    GO - Dealer who issued the plate
    3 =1993 or 2003
    This came into force in 1984 so your boat is the same as mine no HIN before that
    I have an 70 or 80's tri hull Mercruiser 165 I am trying to ID,there are no on line searches you can do in OZ,the info I got was on the phone,they will not tell you who the dealer code is,and they list no manufacture
