    I sense Admin magic. Abracadabra... link works!

    The HIN site is a great tool, but with old boats it pays to be patient...

    I had a real hard time finding my manufacturer when everyone calls the boats 'Sandollar'. I would type in SAN to the MIC box and get nothing...

    Turns out Rowdy Manufacturing was the builder. So technically, Sandollar is a line of boats. And there were different sizes and models.

    To complicate matters, Rowdy changed their name to Glide Boat Works when they moved from Aneheim to Glide Oregon. So if I typed 'Rowdy Manufacturing' into the company box, I got nothing...

    I had to use RWY in the MIC box, or Glide boat works in the company box.

    And if that wasn't bad enough, whoever scribedthe hull ID into the transom left off 2 digits. It was quite frustrating...

    But, I finally found the full hull ID number and manufacturer name on the Coast Guard Capacity plate inside the boat and put the pieces of the puzzle together.

    Hope it goes easier for everyone else...
    Oh for cryin out loud... the boat's name is Princess! Are you happy now?

    Rob, the ID Plate is the "BEST" way to find info. I think the Refrence to "HIN" (hull Identification number) stands for "Hopefull Identifcation Number"
