    Hi just brought my first boat and I am trying to find out what make the hull is, I have hunted high and low, looked at 1000's of pictures and I am no closer. I am hoping somebody on this helpful looking site can help me out

    I have attached two photos below.

    I have an old HIN number but it doesn't make sense (CS1157470)
    Nobody recognised this HIN number

    Thanks in advanced

    nice hull, did it come with the jet unit or as is in the photo. if it had a Hamilton jet , go and see the Hamilton agents near the rail bridge at freo, they might know the boat.

    The guy I brought it off just emailed through an old picture if it helps, he also said that it may have been a commercial HIN

    that number is registration number not hin. your hin number will be on a metal tag . 1 on the transom and a copy somewhere inside the boat in a hidden spot. I spent 1/2 my life in w a and have not seen rego numbers like that before.

    if you can't find a hin number it was probably built before they were used in w.a

    Yeah Perth WA

    I will call them tomorrow and see if they can help, any ideas on where the second HIN would be? There is nothing on the transom.

    Cheers

    http://www.transport.wa.gov.au/imarine/boatcode-and-hin.asp

    "The Hull Identification Number (HIN), also known as a BoatCode, is a unique series of characters and numbers assigned to your vessel, similar to the chassis number (VIN) on motor vehicles. It is usually moulded in the hull or engraved on a metal plate that is fastened the hull.

    A HIN is required when a boat is:
    •Registered for the first time.
    •Transferred to another owner.

    HINs are for newer boats will usually be provided by the manufacturer. Older boats that do not have a HIN can get one from a BoatCode provider."

    If the guy who sold you the boat can't show you the HIN number he should refund your money.

    Not a make of boat from the eastern states of Australia, imo, or if it is, was a very small scale builder. So I'd be looking at WA glass boat makers, though they may well be out of business these days.
