Thanks for the sympathetic ear. I am running down a couple of inside lines (a relative who used recently retired after 30 years with the state licensing office in Tallahassee and a church member who is the county tax collector). I am hoping to have some answers by tonight.
Interestingly, the local agents at the tax collector''s/tag office are affixiated on the fact that all boats manufactured after 1973 (mine is a 1974) will have a hull number. One person even accused me of intentionally destroying the number (to what end I cannot imagine), and another suggested that we simply burn the boat, because without the hull identification number, it was worthless.
Nice folks, these civil servants, and eager to please as well.
