If your boat was manufactured after 1972, you must have a 12-character Hull ID Number (HIN). A photo or pencil tracing must be provided to correct the HIN. If you cannot locate the HIN, you may click the link below to print a Hull ID Number Application. Completed applications should be submitted to the address on the application form. If you do not have a 12-character HIN, you must wait until the state assigns one to register your vessel.
For more information, you may visit the website of the Alabama Department of Conservation or contact the Marine Police Division at 1-800-272-7930.
