    Outstanding... I knew I picked the right forum to learn on... I may just resto, register as homebuilt, and enjoy. Pics are elsewhere on the forums.

    Make up a number...maybe boats are different, but it seems tougher to start from scratch sometimes.

    I built a '23 T-bucket roadster when I was 21 back in 2002. I tried to register as a homebuilt but the amount of hoops to jump through was stupid...so, the next day I came back, with an "original" 1923 VIN number on the frame stamped conviently between the header tubes (so I could have room to swing the hammer)....2123tb02 (21 years old, '23 t-bucket, built in 02)...they ran the vin and of course came up with nothing, said "it's probably off the record"....yeah, no shit, and wrote me a title and registration for $40 in about 15 minutes time.

    Go to the back of the boat and find the Hull ID # then get a Pic of the boat and post that up and you should be able to get a pretty good idea of what you have. Welcome to the forums.

    By the looks of that tag I'd bet this was before numbers on the transom.

    Look at your hull where the green circle is, are there any numbers or letters there on the hull?

    Where else could the hull id be?
    It's still a mystery to me, despite the fact that the boat has crossed two borders and has been customs-cleared.
    Makes me wonder if they really check the hull-id.
    They certainly couldn't find it when customs clearing the boat. An agent has been customs clearing so I don't know what he did to get the things straight.

    Thanks bajadad, yeah, I'll learn a bunch on my own during this project. Just trying to "cheat" is all.

    The boat you have has been repainted and it is possible that the No. were covered in the paint job! And if it is a 1972 year model or older it will not have No. on the boat! WT

    JKA7904 if the boat in hotrods pic. is the one you are trying to find out about it is possible a custom oneoff build! May never know the make or builder! But if it does have a HIN no. on the back most guys on here can help! Good luck! WT


    SOMEONE SAID YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU! SO,IM BURNING IT UP ONE GALLON AT A TIME!
