I'd love to know more history of my boat

Dear all, ecently after a hull re-spray, we discovered the hull number stamp of our 1975 CHB (Clipper) 34.* It reads...
CHB1-095* ETY 33D95* 75-T
Does anyone know the meaning of this number sequence - other than the obvious that it is a CHB of 1975 vintage, I mean?

RE: I'd love to know more history of my boat

there is an article about deciphering hull numbers here:<a href="http://www.nordicaboats.com/html/hin-numbers.html">

http://www.nordicaboats.com/html/hin-numbers.html</a>

but I'm not quite sure yours fits their patterns??* Maybe it is hull number 95 of that model?

Is yours the boat that used to have some rust colored discoloration at the bow?* It looks great!

My guess is that CHB1-095 is not part of your HIN.* That is an additional*description of your boat added by CHB.*

I believe that ETY33D9575T is your HIN.* I am going to try to decipher the alphanumeric string the best I can.* It doesn't follow the*usual form.

ETY is the code assigned by the USCG*for the CHB company that built your boat.

33 is probably the recorded length of your boat (not 34 feet as marketed, but 33 feet.* If you measure your hull length it probably comes out to 33-6 or something like that.)

D is the 4th month of the year, i.e. April, of the year of manufacture - April 1975

95 means yours was the 95th hull produced of the 33 trawler series.

75 is the year of manufacture - 1975

T is the style of your boat - trawler

That is the best explanation I can give.

RE: I'd love to know more history of my boat

Thanks for all the in-put. I think it has shed quite a lot of light on it, especially that from Patrick, so thanks again, all. I will continue to dig around, gargling etc myself as well, to see if I can verify the above.
I had been told it was '75 vintage, but had never been able to find the hull number until we had it out on the hard for antifouling and a hull re-spray with 2 pack, and removed the transom swim-board for this reason, and when we went to replace the platform, the nice new paint job revealed it there, where it would have been tucked in under the right end of the board.

Yes Jennifer, it was indeed the one - here is a before and after pic to illustrate, and yes, I have had to have a new canvas job as well, after 50 kn winds tore it to shreds not long after the paint job.

That's interesting. Let me try... Tell me in I'm close

JRY - Boat yard designation (Senator)

35 - 35' hull length

027 - Hull # built in the month

H5 - Build month of August 1985

86 - Model year

*

Am I right? Maybe? Love to learn more about the yard where it was built.

ah yes, yours is the one I was thinking of.* what a difference, looks like a new boat!*



Now that you mention the canvas, reminds me I need to put my bimini away for the winter!!!

The HIN... several have figured it out but fwiw the ETY stood for Eagle Trawler Yachts.
How to decipher the HINS are on the USCG web site, and so is the documentation information if you have a documented boat.
