How Do You Perform a Free HIN Number Check on a Boat?

To perform a free hull identification number, check on a boat, go to the HIN Decoder website, enter the HIN of the boat, and press decode. The websites present you with information about where the boat was manufactured and the year and month of manufacture. You can also see the serial number of the boat, what company manufactured the boat, who owns the company and the years the company was in business.
