hull-plateHull I.D. Number is a number that is specific to that vessel and different from any other Polaris Inflatable Vessel constructed. The Hull ID Number is also called the Hull Serial Number.
This number begins with three uppercase letters or numbers and is known as the Manufacturer’s Identification Code (MIC). Any boat manufactured by Polaris Inflatable Boats (Canada) Ltd. has ZYP as the MIC at the beginning of the 12 character Hull Serial Number (or Hull I.D. number).
The Hull Number will be found on the upper starboard quarter of the outside surface of the transom and it will also be etched into the hull in an undisclosed location.
