Sailboat ID Help
 
1 Attachment(s)
Greetings,
I am in the process of purcahsing my first big sailboat. I have been told by the owner it is a 1973 Oshawa sailboat. I have researched the maker and to no avail, am I able to find anything about the boat. It leads me to believe the boat was not made by Oshawa. Therefore, I was asking help in identifying this sailboat. Picture included in the attatchments. Thank you in advance.

Maybe it was built in Oshawa, Ontario. Is there a builder's plaque anywhere on board? Perhaps a number somewhere?

I am looking at the boat this boat on Friday. I just want all the information I can find before I look at the boat. Thank you.

On the transom there should be a hull identification number. It will likely start with a code of several letters that identify the builder. Try to find a HIN, it should help on the search a lot.

I suspect the easiest way to identify the boat is to look at the title.

If the title doesn't exist why are you looking at it, it's scrap plastic.

just curious ... what boat description was there in the AD (i presume it was an AD) that caught your eye? or was it the price that caught your eye?

Interesting... I've actually found another 'Oshawa' sailboat, but a smaller, older cute little cuddy daysailer, 15 feet. So it seems the builder did exist.

Any more pictures? There's something nigglingly (?;)) familiar about this boat.. estimate of its size?
