It would be great to find out the real hull number since I will have to get a title for it. Bill
    It might be written on the bulkhead under the dash......might have been where someone put the 6x9 speaker....

    Otherwise, peel the black or dark gray stuff back under the dash......

    I will look maybe later tonight - thanks. Does the light green color sound familiar? I was a little surprised to see that color, but it might be the same color as the Magnum that you posted - the one sitting still? By the way, I was relatively pleased with the structure that I checked out this afternoon. I will have some glass work to do, but most of the components seem solid. For whatever reason, the guys who were contracted to replace the transom did not extend the stringers back to it when they replaced the transom. They also did not seal the bilge drain hole or center engine stringer when they cut it down.

    Do you know if it was a TRS boat?.....they started in '74.

    Any chance the hull number is still stamped in the transom, just covered with paint?.......

    Aaron, I thought transom numbering started later than around 1973 (which is supposed to be the year of this boat). The guys who built the new transom gelcoated it over with white after filling the previous holes - supposedly Volvo holes from what the seller told me. He actually told me that the holes were fairly large so we were guessing Volvo Penta. Bill

    Judging by the dash and the Volvos....I'd guess 1973.

    You hull number might be in the mid 200s....

    That is the color I am seeing under the maroon paint. In the bow, I found 3 equal length lifeline poles like the Green Hornet has in your picture. If that is at all an unusual lifeline and color combination, then it might very well be the boat. I can't believe you guys sometimes! Where do you come up with all the pictures? I can sand the sides a little to see past the paint, but those graphics were probably sanded off for the repaint. Bill

    Thanks - I thought it was a little later. In that case, I should be able to sand off the gelcoat on the right transom upper area to see the numbers that would have been filled in by the gelcoat with any luck - . Thanks again, Bill

    Aaron,
    I will check the transom tomorrow for the numbers which will hopefully show below the white gelcoat. Keeping my fingers crossed - lol. Bill

    .....I stole most of my pictures from Mark!....but I can see he's still holding out.......

    Bill,

    The lifeline was pretty standard on all Sports but I wouldn't be surprised to see some other evidence.

    All the fittings that I saw in Mark's picture are correct. Maybe the number will show itself tomorrow. If it weren't so late, I would drive back out there tonight and sand it - I am anxious to know.

    LOL - yep, but I can't risk hitting a deer like my best friend from college on Saturday night on his Harley in South Bend , Indiana. He luckily only got a broken tibia out of the hit and didn't even drop the Harley!! His wife only sprained her ankle. I digress.
