Introduction and HIN help

Postby Ben2018 » Sat Nov 17, 2018 11:17 am

Hi all, I'm in the process of refitting a C18 for a round Australia trip next year planning to sail Hervey Bay, Darwin and Melville Island, Whitsundays, Monkey Mia and Tasmania.I'm forty years old and planning to work as a vet as I travel. I'm trying to identify my boat number and build year from the HIN
Tried attaching a picture but system wont allow it
AU-WWA118984 AY2 (the AY2 is stanped in the aluminium while the restis printed in black)
I sail on the Pittwater mainly and live in the Hawkesbury
Any help would be great

Hi Ben and welcome to the forum.

Unfortunately your HIN probably doesn't mean much at all aside from the fact that it is unique to your boat. Most of our boats were built before boatcoding was a thing so the HINs have been assigned later. Does the boat have anything to identify it? A number on the sails? A name? Maybe a little metal plate inside the port side cockpit locker with a number on it? Does the cabin roof have a fairly smooth headliner or is it flowcoat?
