Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks are requiring a photo or pencil tracing of the HIN be submitted with registration paperwork for a New or Transfer application.
All boats manufactured after 1972, should have a HIN and this HIN will be identified during the boat registration process. If a HIN cannot be found, KDWPT will determine if an inspection is required.
The Hull Identification Number (HIN) is a 12-character number that uniquely identifies a boat and is formatted according to US Coast Guard standards.
Hull Identification numbers (HIN) are typically located:
- On sport and fishing boats, they can be found on the back right outside corner.
- On pontoons, they can be found on the right side of the frame above the pontoon, but below the deck.
- On personal watercrafts, they can be found under the seat as well as on the lip of the footrest.
The only change to the boat registration process is to include a photo or pencil tracing of the HIN.
