HIN Validation for Marine Surveyors

MARIFAX President Paul Robinson spent twenty years in the marine surveying and claim services business. He is proud to have been a member of the Society of Accredited Marine Surveyors (SAMS, AMS # 349), the American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC), and the International Association of Marine Investigators (IAMI).

Occasionally, all active surveyors observe HINs which appear suspect. Whether the circumstances involve a pre-purchase C&V or an insurance claim damage survey, there may come a time when another set of eyes, backed by an extensive database of comparable HINs, will be helpful. Just as an oil sample is sometimes tested with the cost passed along to the client, a (printable) HINVALID Instant HIN Verification Report may provide an equally valuable warning.

With the new USCG- and DHS-sponsored rules about to take effect, it is in every surveyor's best interest to note whether or not the vessel he/she is attending has a valid HIN. Please contact us with any questions.
