2001 90hp alternate serial # location

Hey guys I'm new here and to boating. I just purchased a 2001 seafox with a 2001 90 hp engine. The thing is amazing I love it! But I need the serial number on the number for my insurance company. The sticker on the trans is faded terribly and the clear coating has chipped.

I found the "silver freeze plug" with the numbers 4917548 on it. But that doesn't seem right. Any other place to look?? I kinda need it ASAP unfortunately.

serial number 4917548 is J90VLSIF.  That is what you need for the insurance.
