I finally figured out where the hull I.D. number is on my Whaler and I.m trying to pinpoint the year. The hull I.D. number is 2033. Any help?

Contact Boston Whaler's customer service department with the hull id they should be able to pin point the year --- probably about 1960 or so --- Tom

Where do you find the number. My title lists my Whaler as a '63. I can't locate a number (visibly)anywhere. Do I have to sand down the blue gelcoat in the bow locker?

According to the "list" your hull should be a 13' built between 1958 and 1961. Those hull numbers range from 100 to 4499. Hope this helps.

I just found mine the other day. It was stenciled dead center of the bottom of the locker.

Great, just where I put a bunch of epoxy about 4 years ago to repair damage caused by the anchor being stored their..... guess I might never know the "true identity" of my trusty steed...

By any chance was it on the bottom surface - as opposed to the aft wall perhaps...

Yes, it is on the bottom, centered, about two inches forward of the rear wall of the locker. I suppose someone may have painted it over, thats why a light sanding might expose it.
