Where can I find the HIN numbers on my 1984 Capri 25?

On your boat registration form? In the insurance documentation. And perhaps on a flat spot molded into your boatís transom. Often itís etched into the gelcoat with a scribe.

Try looking on the transom, starboard side, right below the rub rail. On my boat I had to put a piece of paper over it and brush with a pencil to lift the image enough to read.

Good luck

That is what the yacht brokers all told me but there are no numbers there. I even had all of them down at the boat looking for numbers but no luck.

Well, something tells me in the deep dark recesses of my memory that there is a second ID inside the boat on the inside of the external hull. But I hesitate to speculate where it would be at this point in time. I suggest you contact Catalina Yachts and see if they can help you. Heck if you know your sail number they may be able to cross reference from that.

I think you are right about it being inside somewhere and I half remember coming across is at some point in the last 20 years when I was rummaging around for something else, but now when I need it (for insurance purposes) I cannot find it. Thanks for the helpful advice.

Try looking below the companionway and before the first step along that panel or above that space in the cabin.

Hi JDOG, Did you ever find the hull ID numbers? Mustíve been a royal pain in the butt trying to insure or register your boat without it.

If you have the "sail number" (usually the hull number), the rest can be reconstructed from Catalina's records. They just need to find the year and month it came out of the mold. How about the last state registration (using the P.O.'s name)?
