Thanks guys for all the information.... I'm trying to avoid title fraud as can happen with old boats. I've seen it happen where one boat is junked and the title used on another boat where the title has been lost.It happened to my brother once and he had a hell of a time to get it straightened out. Just like on cars there is a long number with letters that is a Vessel Identification number. This number should be on your registration and title, check your titles and registration. I guess it could be referred almost to like a serial number as well.

[> Vessel ID -- Terry Bradlow, - Tuesday - 01/ 6/09 - 7:33am

Hi Guys just so you know better of what I'm talking about this I found on the state of Florida website. This is the Law
Hull Identification Numbers

No person shall operate on the waters of this state a vessel, unless the vessel displays the assigned hull identification number. A hull identification number is unique to the vessel and allows its positive identification.

The hull identification number must be carved, burned, stamped, embossed or otherwise permanently affixed to the outboard side of the transom or, if there is no transom, to the outermost starboard side at the end of the hull that bears the rudder or other steering mechanism, above the waterline of the vessel in such a way that alteration, removal or replacement would be obvious and evident.

The characters of the hull identification number must be of not less than 12 in number and no less than one-fourth inch in height. Vessels for which the manufacturer has provided no hull identification number and homemade vessels constructed or assembled by the owner shall be assigned a hull identification number by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.

Any questions regarding the hull identification number on a vessel should be directed to the nearest Fish and Wildlife Office or to the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles' Customer Service Center (850) 617-2000.

So I guess we're looking for a 12 digit number, let me know what you find
