I recently bought a Pro Angler 12 at an estate sale. At some point I will most likely install a trolling motor. In the state of Ohio that means I must put my registration numbers on the bow. I am looking at the engrave hull number (serial number) and find it very difficult to figure out what the number is in its entirety. Looking through the documentation that came with the boat I can tell that the previous owner (the original owner) have the same problem figuring out what the hull number is. Ids there any way to track this down buy the name etc of the original purchaser? It was sold in Jan. 2013 I have the dealers name. It does not look like the original purchaser sent in the warrenty card.

1. The original selling dealer should have a record of the sale including the hull # if you can provide the name of the original purchaser and approximate date of sale.

2. In any event, if you chalk over the number (common blackboard or construction chalk), then wipe it off, this will highlight the digits. If this doesn't quite do the job, you may not need the total number to get it -- if you can at least get the part containing the 4 digit production sequence number, you should be able to derive the rest from Hobie. You can get the significant info for each # and letter from the FAQ section.8)
