    Years ago, I did a day paddle with a guy who had installed a trolling motor setup similar to this one, but on the bow of a single. Man! That boat could really move! He towed two of us at 2 knots, and was not at full power. His, once deployed from the cockpit, required assistance from another boat to bring his motor back up.

    This installation looks to be very well done.

    Why do you want to know serial number?

    With reputable builders who keep records, the serial number can be used to find details about the build that the current boat owner may not know. Things like the layup (standard, lightweight, heavy/surf, etc.) and the gelcoat colours (most hulls are not white but some variant on light grey or 'cream' colour) should be in the factory database.

    The Hull Identification Number code will reveal the serial number and month and year of manufacture.

    And, this information also can be used to check the stolen kayak database.

    So there is nothing unusual or suspicious about a buyer request for a Hull Identification Number or serial number, in my opinion. I often request that information when I'm thinking about buying a kayak.
