Stowe Canoe Company HIN Help

I have a 13’ canoe that I am just learning about. The HIN number is SWE 36348-G. I understand that there should be some other numbers there that explain the date of manufacture. Any idea why they aren’t there? It doesn’t appear to be altered or covered up. Thank you for your help!

The SWE indicates that it could be from Swamp Fox Boats, The Stowe Canoe Company, or Mansfield Canoe as described at in the Coast Guard database. The rest of the number doesn't follow their usual hull identification number format as described at in more detail. These contain an encoded date so check the starboard stern for another number. The may not be any more information available. Sorry,
