CN39 - location of HIN (Hull Identification Number) ?
We own the CN39 #61 built in 1979.
I am trying to locate its HIN (Hull Identification Number).
Can anyone hint where I should be looking for that number?
Thanks in advance,
- Gentlemen, and Richard, and Mark H,The Lloyds certificate shown on Roxy, HCC , is a 'Hull Construction Certificate', issued by Lloyds Register of Classed Yachts. It is defined in the Lloyds Register of Classed Yachts as follows: " When all outstanding applicable items shown on the HMN ( Hull Molding Note ) are examined and found satisfactory by the Society's Surveyors, a Hull Construction Certificate will be issued to the Moulder / Builder."A HMN ( Hull Molding Note ) is defined as follows: " A Hull Moulding Note, showing basic items of construction from moulded hull to the completed yacht considered essential to the hull serviceability, will be issued to the Moulder/ Builder to cover items inspected by the Society's Surveyors. This NOTE is not a Certificate."In addition to the above there could have been issued a MIC ( Machinery Installation Certificate ) " When the machinery and electrical equipment have been installed under the supervision of the Society's Surveyors, a Machinery Installation Certificate will be issued to the Moulder / Builder."At that time ( I'm not sure about these days - 2011 ), it was the rule that,.. " Any yacht which holds an HCC and MIC is eligible to receive an LRBC ( Lloyds Register Building Certificate ) and have the particulars entered in the 'Register of Classed Yachts' for one year.I think that the HCC and MIC designations were provided by the builder and that the LRBC was bought as a part of a systematic construction survey purchased by each owner starting before building.Registry was then known and called 'Classification', and a yacht then would be 'registered' under a variety of designations / classes such as R, +100, +100A1, +100A1- LMC, +100A1+LMC, and published as such in the Annual ' Lloyds Register of Classed Yachts'.The LMC ( Lloyds Machinery Certificate ) " This class is assigned to machinery which is of standard mass production and is not surveyed at the makers works but is satisfactorily installed in accordance with the society's ' Rules and Regulations for the Classification of Yachts and Small Craft' ". The +LMC Certification was for machinery it self built under survey, as well as for it's installation.The size of yacht was not a factor. My own boat , a Nicholson 31 built in 1982, was built under full Lloyds supervision and was classed +100A1-LMC, but because I did not continue to have the ' periodic updating surveys' was deleted from the Register in, ( I think ), 1986.Bill RoesnerSV Blueprint +100A1-LMCCN 31-113On Apr 12, 2011, at 3:19 AM, Richard wrote:
