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.

    • Fishing a mid lake Hump that came up to 45ft. Caught most of the fish between 50-61. We did catch some on the top of the hump in the evening. 
    • How deep were the trout running?  We heard ultra deep on Crow to 30 ft.  The 30 ft number came from people actually catching them.   Thanks for the pics!  I like the fly rod smallie.
    • try the raid spray on grass at bottom. 
    • Here are some pictures from this years trip!
    • How do you keep ants off your feeders, especially hummingbird and oriole feeders? I've tried Toro and Raid sprays on the post but it seeks the birds don't like that smell either and i don't see many for a while. Has anyone else experienced that? Any good ideas?
    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
