Author Topic:   hull number

just picked up an old (late 60's/early 70's) 13 ft fixer upper (you'll be hearing more about this project!). Interior has been repainted so I can't find a hull number. A previous post had the same problem... I sanded off the 2nd coat of paint on the interior side of the stern just below the motor cut-out but cannot find the BW number. Any other ideas where to look??? Any suggestions appreciated... hank

Hank, look in the bottom of the front anchor locker or on the inside rear wall of it. My old blue nauset from the 60's had a hull number located in there. Brian

Hank,
Great! I believe there may be one more number in the sequence. Mine has 5 numbers and have have seen several others with 5 as well. Maybe Tom Clark or someone here with more knowledge of the old numbering system would know. Could be hidden under the "ding" you mentioned. Brian

Brian... I can barely make out the 5; 286 are pretty clear. If this is the entire number, then the boat must be '61-'63 model. If it is missing a 2A (for example), then it would be a '70 or so. Any way to determine early 60's boat from an early '70's??? For sure, this is the old style; full bulkhead in the stern; cutout transom; full length bow locker; etc. Suggestions welcome... thanks Hank
