C26 Hull Identification Numbers

Postby EmergencyExit » Thu May 20, 2004 5:07 pm

Does anyone know/understand the last 4 digits of Chrylser hull numbers ?

I know the CBC denotes a Chrysler boat, the next 5 digits are my hull number, but how about the last 4 that show the date of manufacture. My bill of sale lists my C26 as a 1981 model, but since the last 4 digits are "M79C", I am thinking the 79 means 1979 but don't know about the "M" that precedes it, or the "C" that comes last...

Thanks,
Beau

You know, sometimes my head is as hollow as a buoy...I had visited that site but was focusing on the "M" as a month code and there was no month with a code of "M"...but you're right, the "C" following the 79 is likely the month code....

Thanks !

No problem.

Now would be a good time to admit that the reason I was so quick with an answer is because I was stumped by the same thing when I looked up my boat. M? There is no month for M? How can this be? I think the website could be a little clearer on that as I think the leading M is always there.

But atleast the information is there, even if it does require problem solving to decipher.
