    Default Who built your boat? List of Alaskan hull ID number decodes

    I just happened to stumble on this the other day, another post mentioned a HIN number, thought it might be useful to the forum to have a quick ref of Alaskan manufactureres HIN decodes:

    Copy and pasted, hope the formatting stays

    Manufacturers tend to come and go over the years. For this reason, we have compiled this list so that people can find out who made their particular boat. This list only goes back about 30 years so it isn't complete but it's a good start!

    If your boat was made within the last 30 years then it should have a Hull ID Number (HIN) on the transom and somewhere inside the boat.
    The first 3 characters of the HIN are known as the MIC and can be used to identify your manufacturer. Take the MIC and enter it at this USCG site to find out more about a particular boat builder: Company Name
