Cal 34 Data Plate location?

I looked at a Cal 34 today and could not find the data plate. I tried the search feature but no luck. I think it is an early one. Maybe 1968 or 69. Any ideas of where to look? Thanks _____Grant.

Grant, if it's built before 1973, IIRC, there will be no identifying plate other than what the manufacturer chose to put on the boat. My 1969 Pearson only had a bronze plaque with the hull number on it. Found it in a drawer a couple years after I bought the boat.

I hadnt even looked for an HIN number, but it would not have one anyway. I was hoping for a Builders Plate to give a hull number, but didnt see one. It is an Estate sale with very little information available. I will see what happens over the next few weeks. Thanks, Grant.

I own a 1974 Cal35C. I'll be heading to the boat on Sunday. See if I can give you a location. My boat was CG documented. They had the complete record. You may find the boat you are asking about in their name search.

I'll report back.

I owned a 1968 Cal-34 for many years. It had no data plate but the hull number was written on the inside of the transom with what looked like a marking pen. You could see it by looking back from the cockpit seat locker with a flashlight.

Wayne, thank you. I had heard that sometimes there was only a number in some out of the way place, but this gives me a good chance of finding it. Thanks again. _____Grant.
