Reference: Secondary Location for HIN on c. 2001 13' Sport Hulls

I was de-rigging one of our 2001 13' Sport boats yesterday to perform a powerplant transplant. The replacement engine is a different make, so it required a complete de-rig. When I removed the throttle control box at the helm, I noticed that there is a secondary HIN location on these hulls. Not sure if this information is in the reference section of the site or not. This is an excellent location because it is completely protected and will likely survive all but the most complete and utter destruction of the craft, and thieves are unlikely to look there if they are modifying the hull to obscure the HIN for resale.
