time to rip it up.

Post by 2stinger » Tue Aug 08, 2006 1:23 pm

Joel,

Here is a link to a picture of the boat I bought last weekend. It is supposedly a Beachcraft 21 but I have some doubts. First I have never seen a beachcraft center console and second it looks to sleek. But maybe it is, who cares. Everything inside needs to be replaced below the rail. I plan on removing the inner liner about 4" below the rail on the gunwale.

I would like to use foam in case I would want to sell it at some point. The sole has been replaced twice according to the previous owner and the current sole was done buy someone at Intrepid Boats.


Thank's

Andy

2stringer, to know exactly who the manufacturer is, find the HIN number. It's usually on the transom, top starboard. The first letters tell the name of the builder. There is somewhere a database of USCG builder's ID on the web.

It is a two piece boat. originally it was an out board but someone refitted it with an OMC I/O. I would like to close the transom and use a bracket.

The hull is in great shape but the absents of scuppers made for a deteriorating environment for everything else. I guess when they closed the transom they decided that scuppers where not important.

here is the database. like jacq said just enter the first three letters of the HIN in the space that says MIC space and hit search. to me it looks like a sea craft.

Right now the number is covered up by a repair. When I start sanding I will see if I can make it out.

There may be another HID located under the bow deck. This is required after a certain year model, to ID boats when thieves do "repairs" over the original numbers on the transom :D

Since 1980 something, the USCG require two HID, one on the transom and one hidden. Only the USCG and the manufacturer know where the 2nd one is. It is used to identify stolen boats.
