I was told that i need a notarized copy of Manufacturer's Certificate of Origin...

i guess in the excitement, this may have been "misplaced"

can i get a copy of this?
if so, how?

thanks

AL

Call your dealer where you bought the boat. They can get another one from Hobie, then send it on to you. This registration stuff is a PITA, eh?

no kiddin...

who woulda thunk... you need to register it if you slap on a motor... a battery powered motor...

and this puzzles me...

you need boat license if you operate it in non-tidal waters...

why you need license for non-tidal and don't need one for tidal waters?

We have the same thing in KY. put a trolling motor on a bath tub and you have to register the thing. It's a gov'ment thing. On the same order as trying to understand the Divine Trinity. Also a revenue stream. Just not for us...

Yep, call your dealer for a MSO. Hobie refers to it as a "Manufacturer's Statement of Origin."

I just went through this. It can take a bit of time depending on where the boat was made. My HIN# is prefixed with "CN" which means made in China :(. Dealer said the boats made in Asia take longer to get the MSO. Called on July 24 & finally got it on August 18. Not the dealer's fault, but still a long time. If you have a USA made boat (I think the PA is) then hopefully process is much quicker.

Moral is ask for it yesterday if you need it soon.

BTW: There is a little FAQ on this in the forum.

Good luck!

The inflatables are. Mine's an i12s. Not sure which, if any, rotomold boats are.

If you look at the Hobie Serial Number FAQ http://www.hobiecat.com/articles/boat-serial-number-location,15/ it says a "CN-" prefix is made in China. Maybe this applies more to sailboats than kayaks since faq is for both.
