HIN on a drift boat
Had my visit from the TWRA agent on Friday to assign a HIN to my boat. As it turned out it already had one but not on the transom. The agent informed me that typically boat manufacturers put them in more than one place. My drift boat had it near the nose under the outside edge. The agent said that even though it had a HIN since it wasn't displayed on the transom it was good that I submitted the form to get one assigned and the boat inspected. They are going to make one that matches my boat to put on the transom.
I guess when the previous owner had my boat reglassed the one on the hull was covered.
