### Hull number

Posted:

Can someone enlighten me as to the difference between the hull identification number ( HIN) and the hull number? The documentation form has QPQ00014F191 for the hull identification number and QPQ00015F191 for the hull number. The surveyor says that this is not correct and should be addressed with the USCG documentation people. Is the hull number just the 2 digits ? In this case would it be 14? I have seen this vessel posted here as "Brigadoon," hull number 14. Thank you sincerely for any help. Warren and Diane Thames, Punta Gorda , Florida.
