I've found something about it but I don't understand it fully yet.

As an example there was:
AUL = Albin
33 = Model - 33+3 Express Trawler
125 = 25th built - Albin always started production with hull 101
J = Month Hull molded - October (J is 10th letter in alphabet
1 = Year Hull molded - 2001
02 = 2002 Model Year

My hull number is
#EUR 32 110 0 2 78

if I apply above decryption to my hull number I run against a number of things.

EUR= Browns marine inc FL.
32=model 32
110= 10th built
0=?? its not a letter?
2=year hull molded 2002
78=1978 model year (or 2078)

So I don't have a Albin. its not a 33 trawler model. zero is not a letter if I pretend its an O, it must by a 15th month. ?septembruary or marchtember depending its a leap year?. its a 78 model but the hull is only 15 years old.

in that case they have done a great job letting it look like a 39year old boat

I think I'm doing something wrong
can somebody help me
