(a) A hull identification number is required for a boat registered under this chapter.

(b) It is unlawful to remove, alter, deface, destroy, or otherwise make illegible a hull identification number.

(c) The department may assign a hull identification number to a boat if the number has been altered, removed, obliterated, defaced, omitted, or is otherwise missing. A hull identification number assigned by the department will consist of the letters "AKZ" followed by the first five characters of the assigned boat number followed by four characters indicating the month and year the boat is registered or the year of manufacture, if the year of manufacture is known.

(d) The owner of a boat that has been assigned a hull identification number by the department under this section shall carve, burn, stamp, emboss, or otherwise permanently affix the identification number in characters at least one-quarter inch high to the outboard side of the starboard side of the transom, or, if there is no transom, to the outermost starboard side of the hull that bears the rudder or other steering mechanism and above the waterline in a manner that any alteration, removal, or replacement would be obvious.
