Hin

That looks to be the HIN but Ericson boats start out ERY. GFL was used for a Cherokee which was made in Michigan. Built in June of 1970?

www.ericsonyachts.org is a much better site.

Talking Hin Number

Hi thought much the same.
Are you able to give me an example of a Hin Number that Ericson would put on their boats.

According to the Ericson manual:
"The first three letters "ERY" designate the manufacturer, Ericson Yachts.
The next two numbers "28" designate the model and
the following three numbers are the hull number.
Following the hull number is a letter which corresponds to the month of manufacture where, A=January, B=February, C=March and so forth.
The first of the last three numbers is the last digit of the calender year that your boat was built and the last two numbers represent the model year".
