According to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, “More than 13,000 Iowa boat owners will be receiving a letter soon alerting them that their boat hull identification number (HIN) does not comply with U.S. Coast Guard regulations and they have to verify their HIN with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) in order to register their boat.” This mistake is from the old manufacturer issuing incorrect Hull Id Numbers (HIN) to boaters. So now, before a boater’s registration expires on April 30, 2016, they will need to contact the Iowa DNR and verify the HIN.
Boaters with incorrect numbers will be required to acquire new HIN tags for their boat, which is where National Band & Tag comes in! Just fill out our quick and easy HIN Tag Form here: https://nationalband.com/hin-tags/ and enter your new hull ID number (12 alphanumeric digits) as well as if you would like 1 or 2 HIN tags for your boat! Our heavy duty non-corrosive stainless steel tags will be custom stamped with your HIN and will last for years on your boat.
