Boat Identification

I have owned a 14' 7" Skipjack sailboat for about six months now but I have been unable to identify a model or year. I know it is a skipjack based on the sail insignia as well as I was able to match the hull design to the skipjack in "A Field Guide to Sailboats of North America" by Richard M. Sherwood.

I am no genius but please don't just suggest I check for the HIN already tried that and have not been able to locate anything. The transom looks as if it was replaced at some point and I think maybe the identification was removed or lost at that point.

That being said is there any where else to look on the boat in order to identify the model and year? Or is there any other way of finding such information from other sources, i.e. books, website etc.

Thanks!
