    Bill,

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

    Wow!....glad to hear your buddy is "okay"......I worry about deer on my bike too.

    Mike just sent me the pictures of the Aero here at a local marina. You can be the judge, but it sure has a lot of similarities. Bill

    The navigation lights and vents give it away as a Lancer or Aero. I watched the mold being made off the Magnum, the dash & deck wood insert & quality were the only things not copied.

    I sanded on the starboard transom upper area, but it only had the green underlying gelcoat. Is there a chance the hull numbers would have been etched elsewhere on the transom?

    Personally....I thought the hull numbers started in '74 but I'm not going to argue with old school dudes like Buzilla.....

    Maybe Mark will know.....?

    Aaron,
    What year is your boat, and does it have transom ID #s?

    Mine's a '74 and it has the transom number "cast" in. MAG273010674

    The number 301 is written under the dash somewhere too.

    Is it inscribed on the starboard upper transom or somewhere else?

    I guess I will sand a little more tomorrow to reveal some more area, but if it were in the new typical place it would already have shown. I seem to remember some old hull number in the dead center upper portion of the transom on some boat that I restored years ago - possibility? I might be panning for gold in a fish tank -

    If it's any help, mine is MAG250080273 ... Feb 1973 supposedly ..

    And it's on the stbd transom just under the ridge on the hull/deck joint ..
    Just because something's old doesn't mean you throw it away !
