Markings on steps?

I found these markings on the steps down to the galley on my 1983 Atlantic/Prarie 30 LRC: 30-5S 2 (see picture). Could it mean the boat is the 30 model & is hull # 5? The S is elongated, could be an 8? and the 2 is like when you square. A #. Does anyone know what it could mean?

Does the number correlate to your hull number?
It may be a marking to identify the part, your steps, to the boat during the build process if they had multiple builds going of the same model.

There is no manufactures plack on my boat that I can find & I was wondering if the 5 could be my hull #. I also think it could be a part # for the step. Is the hull # part of the # stamped on the transom?

Yes, the hull number is part of the HIN stamped on the transom. My hull number is PBJ000230280. PBJ is the builder code, 00023 is the hull number, and 80 is the year. Not sure but I think 02 is the month.

I agree that it's just a builder's part designation, I've seen them in other components on my boat. 30 is the length, beyond that it's hard to know. It looks like a 58 to me. Step #2? It was never intended for the owner, just to make sure the yard guys put the parts in the right place in the right boat.
