The Hull Identification Number (HIN) is the unique identifier for a boat. When a vessel is registered, it requires a HIN certificate, which lists important vessel details.

If you need to change your vessel's HIN data, a Boatcode Agent will have to inspect the vessel. You can then apply to update your details by either taking the HIN modification certificate to a service centre, or by sending it in the mail.
