Boat "Identifiers"

Boat Identification:

”Walking the dock has become a study in subtlties for the editors of Good Old Boat. Good old boats are everywhere, and we know 'em when we see 'em. But who was the manufacturer? Sometimes they still have a name decal or plate which is visible from the finger pier. But sometimes we wind up studying the cove stripe detail for clues. Our own C&C 30 and other C&Cs have a clearly identifiable stripe. We began to wonder if other manufacturers were similarly consistent with their cove patterns.
On this page we'll post cove stripes (some we're sure about and some on mystery boats that we're hoping you'll identify for us) ...”

~ Cove Stripes:

Hull Identification Numbers (HIN) are required on all boats manufactured since 1972. The first three letters of the HIN, known as the MIC, identify the manufacturer of the vessel.
