Just how am I supposed to convince the Maryland DNR that the Virginia title probably has a typo, and that my boat was built in 1972? I'm not finding an online resource that definitively proves what hull numbers were built during which year.

Any ideas?
What makes you think the MD DNR will care? They'll just copy the old VA title. It won't matter to them when the boat was actually built.
