But as noted, this appears to be a Cal, the 8 may very well be a "B" but appeared to be an 8.......
No, I wasn't saying that "JEN" stood for Jeanneau. According to the USCG MIC (Manufacturer Identification Code) data base
JEN is the MIC for Bangor-Punta, the folks how bought Cal-Jensen in the late 60's. However, if you click on the "CAB" MIC the info that pops up seems to indicated that CAB was the MIC for Cal-Jensen at one time, but that MIC is now registered to "Stroker Boats" in Tennessee. The MIC "IRI" is registered to JEANNEAU AMERICA INC. The "AR" should be part of the boat's serial # (maybe the model?).
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
