Visibly similar, yes, but the rudder arrangement/transom is wrong..

Re: help me identify this boat

Despite the HIN confusion.. this boat has the look of Lapworth to me, and this looks like a good match.. Cal 25-2

CAL 2-25 sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com

Re: help me identify this boat

Since the HIN still does not match, I'd still be a little wary.

Re: help me identify this boat

for what reason would someone replace the number on the boat with a different one? possibly making an offer on this boat next weekend. last registered in 2001 but has a beautiful 12hp yanmar and is very dry down below. owner wants $2500

Re: help me identify this boat

I wonder if they recylce HINs if companies cease production?? It's pretty clear that this is an example of that particular model, and the HIN picture doesn't look tampered with.. If it surveys well that's a pretty nice boat for someone...

Re: help me identify this boat

CAB was the code for Cal boats back in the 70s. the code was reassigned in the late 80s when Cal/Jensen closed up.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:
