I am trying to buy a 22 Guardian 86 model and the boat is freshly painted with both ID tags removed. I am trying to tell this guy where to sand the hull to find the hull serial number impregnated in the gelcoat. On my 20 footer it was on the face of the "step up" in the front on the right side. This boat has no similiar step up, best as I can tell from the picture. Does anyone know where it is located? He also says he remembers a dull white number somewhere near the anchor locker. Is this number white or black? Thanks for any help!!

I checked both Guardians and the serial numbers are located in 2 places. The numbers are on aluminum plates, riveted to the hull.
1. Starboard upper corner of transom.
2. Bow anchor locker-starboard side wall near the rear bulkhead, 2" down from the top lip.

There are no numbers impregnated into gelcoat or fiberglass.

Thank you so much DIVE1 for your reply. The two numbers you refer to are the ones missing. I talked to Chuck Bennett with Whaler and he said the hull serial (which is different from the HID) is in the starboard rope locker on the top of the aft wall. The seller sanded off the paint in that area and found no number. DIVE1, would you mind looking in that rope locker to see if you have one there. These numbers are black and about 3/4 inch high and there will be 5 or 6 characters/numbers. Usually one being a letter and the rest numbers. Thank you again for your help.

I will take a look in the rope lockers tomorrow and let you know.

The hull numbers are in the starboard rope locker, bow side, 1"-2" down from the top lip. They are stenciled in black about 3/4" tall. These numbers are on the factory gray gelcoat.
Good Luck,
