Please Help Identify My Boat

Hi....I am new to this site and excited about learning more about local sailing. I have aquired a 20' fiberglass boat with approximately 8' beam. There is a v-birth with a head on the port side, it has a through the hull tiller and handle. I cannot find a name, label, model number anywhere. I am in the process of fixxing her up and would love any help in identifying. The earliest registration tag on the boat is 1980, so I assume it is probably a 1979? I am in the process of registering, however, I have not been able to find any manufacturer name with past registration. Thanks for your help!

Look for a HIN.

Boats manufactured or imported (USA & Canada) on or after August 1, 1984 must have a 12 character Hull Identification Number that uniquely identifies each boat.

The first three characters of the HIN are a MIC (Manufacturer Identification Code) assigned by the Coast Guard to the manufacturer or the person importing the boat.

Characters four through eight are a serial number assigned by the manufacturer.

The last four characters indicate the month and year the boat was built, and the model year.

See the USCG Manufacturers Identification Code (MIC) Database at: www . uscgboating.org/recalls/mic1.aspx

Thank you....a couple more questions

Thank you Gordy...I really appreciate your time....my boat is difinetly pre 1980.....no numbers anywhere! I took the dive mask below water line looking for anything....and went completely throuth the inside, inside sead hatches, etc.... nothing. Oh well...I know it is 20' long and 7'10" beam....looks simple enough to figure out....I would like to know the manufacturer just for fun...Thanks Again!

I just ran through the sailboatdata.com database of 20' boats, didn't find anything exactly like it.

You're sure you can't find any kind of information plate in it? Is there an insignia of some kind on the mainsail? Sometimes that'll tell you who made it.

Could you tell us if it is a swing keeler or a fin keeler? The bow pulpit looks extra large like an add on. The handrails on the foredeck are a bit uncommon.

To me it looks a lot like a Cal. Cal made a number of boats in this size range. Take a look here... http://www.gjenvick.com/BangorPunta/...Performer.html

You may also want to look at Oday and Schock, Ericson, Pearson, Catalina and Ranger.

There were no registration papers to transfer title with the DMV?

I would take the registration number (or "CF number" as we call it in California) on the bow to the DMV and see what comes up in their data base. The registration always has the make of the vessel. You are going to need to get it registered anyway.

I too think the teak grab rails forward and the large pulpit are not standard.

It looks a bit like a Clippermarine w/o a rudder. Look on the inside of the hull back by the transom, you may find some numbers painted on the glass.

I don't think it looks like a Clipper Marine but maybe. I keep trying to compare the ports on the cabin side with others I've seen but just can't make it work for a 20 footer with a reverse transom and through the cockpit rudder post.

What is the shape of the keel? Are you certain it is 20 from tip of transom to stem of the bow.

A mystery.

regards,

I figured it out...Newport 20'

Thanks to all once again for the resources and input on indentifying my new boat. It is a Newport 20'...possibly the Newport Holiday boat co.? I found some limited info on various web sites....If you have any info on the Newport I would appreciate it. It is most likely a 1970 Newport 20 with the fixed keel. Thanks!

You've probably already seen this?

NEWPORT 20 Sailboat details on sailboatdata.com

I've been about a Newport 27 and a 30 and they are very large inside for their length. The 27 had some severe blister issues so check your hull thoroughly.

regards,
