The VIN should be on your registration. If you don't have that then call the DMV, and they should be able to get you a new registration paper

If you get the HIN # the authorites will black list it as stolen so if they go to a dealer to get an ignition key made. Dealers are not spposed to program any ski without checking documentation.

I doubt you will ever see it again even if you had the HIN. Boats get stolen all the time in my area, and I've only heard about one that was recovered. I hope you had insurance.

okay i see but how about if you get stopped by the police on the lake ? Do they not run the hin number thru a database?

the dnr is what i meant as in police patrolling the lake
If they don't have the papers, then yes if it was reported they should see it come up as stolen, just like a car.

There is also a GPS security tracking system that you can install thats works from GPS movement and sends txt or e-mail alerts to a smartphone.
