Location of serial # on Boat and motor?

7 posts in this topic

On the boat it is most likely, as you are standing and looking at the back of the boat from behind it's on the right outside of the boat near the top on the transum. On most motors it's on one side or the other of the motor. It's on the frame that is tight against the transum, or some times it's right under the front of the motor on the frame. Hope this helps. I know the last 2 numbers on the boat serial number is the year it was made.

I believe on ours there is also some information on the inside of the motor cover.Either that or it was one of the anti-theft devices...

Shouldn't it also be on the U.S. Coast Guard display of capacity yellow display plate, either on the console or near the transom?

Boat S/N's location should be were others have described it.

Motor S/N Location is somewhat brand dependent. Sometimes they're on a sticker attached to motor mounting bracket (that attachs to the transom), sometimes they're on the motor's midsection where the trim and tilt rams connect to and push against (but on the top side - not the side the trim & tilt works on), sometimes they're under the hood...

One older boat I had didn't have a serial number. When I registered it, I was told that the state would send me a hull ID but I don't remember if that ever happened.

My Sears cartopper has the SN stamped on the transom.

    • Lilac blooms are here, just haven't opened. Hearing some reports of good finds in the Houston and Lewiston areas of MN. I checked some new public areas today on the MN side. Could be decent later but too cold and wet right now. Will check some early season spots tomorrow but won't hope for much with the cold weather.
    • Nice!  Must have seemed forever waiting.
    • 6 months later and he is home
    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
