Identify Unknown 13-foot Hull

Postby Rod mcnutt » Mon May 14, 2018 5:59 pm

Hi all. I am new to the forum and to the "forums" in general. I have a few whalers from 9' to 17', in all my research I cannot identify this 13' with its blunt bow. On the DMV paperwork the year is 0000. I guess my questions about this skiff is approximate year and model?

My research has also led me to the understanding that you all are the ultimate authority when it comes to whalers and will likely be no chore.

Thanks in advance!

Rod

Based on the hull shape at the bow the hull is unlike a Boston Whaler boat.

The California title says BOSTONWHL and HIN is CZF9934K0000A. The hull is tagged via brass plate with that hull number and is clearly legible. All dimensions are 13' whaler, the hull is 12'-8". The bow is not home modified as the bow rail would have to be moved out considerably. I guess I'll just name it unicorn once restored.

My mistake on that HIN! It is CFZ9934K0000A not "CZF".

Many thanks to those who have helped me out on this as im completely dumbfounded.

CFZ is registered as a California Homemade Boats. my guess is they chopped the front of the boat off and made a custom bow section. and then registered it as home made. I could be wrong though.

I thought maybe it was a weird one off, glad I didn't pay much for her. Can't imagine who would ruin a whaler in such a way? Many thanks to all--Rod
