        e-men,Try this web site: http://www.boatsafe.com/nauticalknowhow/hin.html According to its explanation, your SN tells the following: STRF - Starcraft, 4874 - hull serial number, 0280 - date of certification, F0 - unless this is "F" for January and "0" for 1980, haven't a clue.tcube

          Re: Starcraft Serial # decoding

          Something is wrong with the Hull Identification Number (HIN) you have posted. The manufacturer identification code for Starcraft is STR, not STRF (unless the F indicates a foreign or export model ), and the HIN should end in an alpha character followed by three numeric characters. See the below link for more info:HIN ExplanationThe above link info is valid for boats built after about 1972, so if your boat is older than that it may not have an HIN or the HIN may not conform to the above. Good luck.

              If we assume that it is not a HIN on the back of my boat, because it reads exactly as written above, where else may i find a source of information to find out the name / model of my starcraft? any website available (oh yes, i _did_ search google, that´s why i am here
