Application for Hull Identification Number (HIN)
All watercraft in Indiana must have a hull identification number (HIN) stamped or attached to the watercraft if operated on Indiana waterways. If the watercraft does not have a HIN, is assembled, or the HIN is changed, then an Application for Special Identification Number – Vehicle or Watercraft – State Form 12907 must be completed.
Applications for a special identification number are processed by the BMV Central Office. The Special Identification Number – HIN Watercraft Application Packet provides a detailed list of the documents required to be submitted with the application for title. Prior to submitting each application, verify all required information is included.
