Location of serial # on Boat and motor?

Recommended Posts

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?

nm, that's make and model...my bad.

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.

    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme. 
    • New Ice shelter coming this fall from Otter and Polaris specifically made for full size Rangers.  This will be available through Polaris Dealers.   https://fishingminnesota.com/forums/topic/210952-new-ice-shelter-from-polaris-and-otter/    
    • Sure I do Dave. You take a lot of nasty old rotted left over wood from torn down houses or where ever else they scrape it up from?  Sweep it up off the floor and turn it into little compressed pellets usually for heating stoves, then Dave makes his food with it! 😜    
    • Because that's the technical term. I can't help it if you don't know what a pellet grill is or what it can do. I'm more than happy to educate you though.....     BTW, those St. Louis spare ribs were a 5-1/2 hour smoke.
