    Default hin number question

    Does the 550 in the hin number of this 86 mantra
    Stand for the weight of the hull??
    I also have a 81 sunkist is there a code for the weight on it?

    Nice find!!!I don't think anything in the hin number has anything to do with the weight of a boat

    Mike is right about the hin numbers. Nice find. If the hull resembles a TX-19 only narrower, its a Mantra Performer. Good running hull. Its gonna be fun. Post some pictures of the front of hull and pump hardware area. Will the middle of the deck support your weight? I have a performer and it`ll barely support my weight of 165 lbs. I wish it was a little heavier for lake boat use but its not a potato chip either.

    The front will hold my weight, I'm 175..
    I had a potato chip mantra years ago, this is
    A heavier lay up. I have a sunkist that I can pick up with pump easy, this one not so much.

    It's a great find and we will bring it back to life.. I'll post some more pics too.
