That is a sweet boat! Nice find. Looking forward to the resto progress & pictures.
Welcome to the board!

2010 D3 Z7, 2 @ 32 off, 34 mph so far
with the carpet ripped up it was time to get onto the floor itself..
the ply bulkhead panel you can see under the dashboard is now removed as that had also rotted due to the fact when the later windshield was fitted it hadnt been sealed correctly
the rip out is a bit further on than pictured at the moment but I didnt take any pics from last weekends work.. I'll get some done before I start this weekend (hopefully he says cause its snowing at the moment)
The HIN should be right below the rubrail on the right side of the transom. The info is killing me already, I can't believe you've had the boat for a week and haven't found it yet.
lol its killing you !!!
I didnt even know there was such a thing as a HIN ?? I knew it wasnt mid 80's and suspected very early, I also knew it was quite a rare colour as I have only ever seen 1 other in black 20 years ago and as my sherlock holmes / columbo investigations turned out its the same boat anyway LOL..
Now i'm excited to the prospect that it might even be the only 1 in the uk.
I'll be looking for this damn HIN number tomorrow in the daylight for sure it'll be posted here about 30 seconds after !!!
Right there is no hun on my boat just some little holes where possibly an id plate used to be, I'm not concerned as my friends 85 S&S also has no hun, and I checked 2 other boats locally and they haven't got a stamped in number either.. so what the heck its carry on regardless...
didnt get any work done on the boat last weekend due to the terrible weather, this weekend looks better and have arranged for the engine to be removed so I can get on ripping the stringers out.. will get some more pics up over the weekend
