Sears 14' V Hull

Post by Zebenv » 23 Mar 2017, 10:53

can anyone tell me what year this may be. no HIN # so i had to get NYS marine police to issue one.

it had plywood transom sandwiched between aluminum, which was rotted and i replace with solid CCA and stainless bolts.

i was thinking 1984, but the marine police said they thought it was older.

great condition with no leaking rivots.

If it has no HIN or doesn't show where a HIN plate was riveted to the transom it's probably early 1970's or older.

The HIN Plate was riveted to transom but most was unreadable.

Find pictures of Sears boats that have a known years and compare the Sears emblems. How much of the HIN can you read?
