Based on what little I've been able to discern about Californian HINs, the J and M designate it as a Jules Marshall designed boat. Mine is "JCM034020177" with the C meaning built in CA. This is from Gil Marshall, Jules' son.

I figured the 034 means 34 footer and 77 is the 1977 build year. I asked Gil about the 0201 but the papers have been lost through several corporate sales and he could not definitely determine the meaning.

If yours is a 1984, it would be a Wellcraft model built in ? Florida? . Do you have aluminum window frames and white panel doors?

No Cats here, either. But according to Gil Marshall, the 34 with the Cats was his favorite for its speed.
