Probably a much older boat like a 66 or so Was probably registered or titled in 1970. My hornet is a 68 but on the reg it is a 69.

Post some pics I think the triple hatches are like the first 100 18s made

We just had a 66 triple hatch barrelback win oldest classic at the 18th Annual LGDCC Dust Off a few weeks ago

It is a barrel back, so what you are saying is that the boat is rare? I will post some pics later today.

About 230 ish barrelbacks were produced until 1968 of about 100 of which were triple hatch. The term rare is relative depending on condition and total production numbers some models are rarer than others. But yes you don't see to many triple hatches surviving today
