How to tell what year your kayak was made

Post by JCOOLEY » Tue Sep 23, 2008 2:42 pm

Each kayak has a number on it that identifies it. This is called the Hull ID Number. The Hull Id # is located on the kayak and begins with XZE. The last two digits are the ones that will tell us what year it was made in. It will look something like this....XZE0186AA202. The "02" tells us that the kayak was made in 2002. It should be this way with all of the kayaks unless you bought a sample model or any other non-production model.
