    Default 1971 southwind 18ft

    when i register the boat i found out the id # was 011 so i am guessing it is the 11th hull made. i was wondering if that is a good thing or a bad thing or even if it is worth anything.

    I may be wrong but I think it just means you have the 11th one made. It might make it more attractive to " that guy " but as far as I know there was no special edition or anything like that. Do you have any pics? Weclome to PB.

    That number has nothing to do with what number hull it was. Southwind was started or bought shall we say in 1969. I know for a fact that there were more than 11 boats made in 2 years.....
    You have the 11th boat made in that year.
    Its worth what ever you think its worth. I can tell you this, mine has a bit of sentimental value, but I would still sell it.

    I sold my cruiser 2 years ago and it was popped out of the mold the month my grandpa passed away (1997) (owner of southwind boats).RIP!!!There is a long story to this, but thats for another thread.

    Boats can be replaced, but memories will last forever!!!

    There is a guy up in sac named Bill Morgan, he has the SWTD mold. He bought the company in 81 but made very few boats.

    if you've had it that long, you must have the title??? if you do, what does it say for "vessel yr built", "yr model", and "builder"? no way to really know, but i'd guess yours was laid up in socal before morgan and friends bought the mold and moved it to sacto. those guys worked at jemcraft in socal, so quite possibly had a hand in the layup anyway.

    Nope, just bummed around the shop. Never did any work out of the shop before they bought it. They just wanted to make sure they got my dads boat in the deal...
