Boats that old may not have one marked. My old boat has a plate down by the engine mounts. Hard to find and could be really crude up.

Looking for which boat motor modle number of block used buy the hull number will that tell me anything

The manufacturer of the boat should be capable to give you the make/type/power/serial information if you give them model and serial of the hull.
At least if it wasn't changed during the lifetime of the boat.

Got no serial or id plate ,got number off freeze plug need to get new serial plate

Hi David:
Seems unusual to me that a boat (hull) ID number would be on something removable like a freeze plug.
Usually the serial number builder, weight, and load information is on the plate that you mention. It should be attached to a bulkhead or the transom, either inside or out.
Registration is typically handled by the Coast Guard or Gov't depending on where you are. Since they love to collect sales taxes, they also keep records, so if you can ID the boat by REGISTRATION NUMBER, they should be able to readily come up with the serial number.
If the boat was sold to you with all possible means of ID removed, I would personally be quite suspicious. Hope you know and trust the seller and can produce the Bill of Sale and proof of ownership.
I'm wishing you luck.
A visit to the nearest authority in your area, even the police, will get you started on resolving this.

Have a Larson boat need to know the year of the

The serial number is so short it makes me think it's a 1958 model but newer models with 9 digits or more use the last two numbers as the year model which would make it a 1980. You can verify this by either going to and looking at the different model names and numbers or just calling your state's boater registration department and asking them.
