PPPPPP42 is on a distinguished road
I really just need to know because I need to send in for a title next week and since this boat was abandoned I honestly don't have a clue what year it is. (don't need the lecture I always get on this, we do titles for boats abandoned at the repair place here all the time)

It would be really cool to have a first year oday 22 though it would probably actually make it worth less since this design was obviously a learning process over the years and the later ones were likely better boats.

That aside all I have to go on it that it was made pre Nov 72 since it has the early style hull number/class number plate that O'day used instead of the usual HIN number.

I suppose I'll just title it as a 72 then since that's when it was produced.

EDIT: I love how even on that link it says first built 1972 but all the references on the rest of the page are 73-79.
Jim I had assumed that the few 72's I had seen were titled in error later on based on the build date, but if yours was a '72 that early on (probably 2nd owner?) then they must have been titling them based on the build date right from the start back then instead of the intended model year.
