HIN on DS3?

Postby Kerrald » Fri May 29, 2015 7:28 pm

Hey folks, I just bought a DS3 and am wondering where the HIN is on it. Apprently, I need a pencil sketching of it for the registration here.

Thanks in advance!

Should be stamped on the middle of the transom ... ?

You should be able to easily get a tracing from it.

A second HIN can sometimes be found starboard under the gunwales, or a bit forward of that. This is second hand info, since my DS predates HINs.

I also found my HIN inside the cuddy cabin on the port side looking up.
