If you have bought or sold a boat, make sure to update your membership profile. If you moved up in fleets, update that as well!  Sabot dues are on a calendar year.

How do I find the boat's hull number?
Generally the hull number is engraved into the front thwart of the boat, inside, near the bottom. It should be a 4 or 5 digit number. More often than not, if there is a serial number on the transom, it does not  have the hull number embedded within... Your junior director or coach should be able to help locate a number.

What if there's no hull number?
If you cannot find any identifying numbers, contact the INSA office and we'll issue a new number or one that is "age appropriate" for the year of the boat.

How much are new hull numbers?
New hull numbers are $25 and can only be issued from the INSA office.

Does my sail number need to match my hull number?
Yes! Per the Class rules, they are to match. Often times peopel will donate or sell sails, but keep their number on. You should put the proper number on your sail to match your boat. Any local sailmaker can sell you replacement numbers.

What if my boat doesn't have a Measurement Certificate?
First check with the INSA office to see if there is a MC on file. If not, our Chief Measurer can arrange to have the boat checked to create a MC. All racing boats should have a MC.
