Hull #, can it start with 101?

Hello All, and I'm sorry if this has been discussed earlier, could not find info.

Anyone is aware if some boat manufacturers start their Hull Series with 101 instead of 1?

Specifically, I'm refering to the Aloha 34. Is hull 101 the first one? I've seen a 1975 Hull 101 according to owner. Production of this boat started in 1975, and you can see 1981 with Hull # such as 140. It would be impossible to construct 100 boats on first year of production.

So, is it possible that Hull start #101 instead of #1?

The hull numbers can be started with what ever the manufactor desires.

Are you sure it says 101? aloha 34's also went by 10.4, is it possible it's a .4 and not 1

Alohas were built by Whitby so they would start with QWH, WBW or ZWB but they wouldn't start with a number, it could be something like WBW10.4******** or whatever

Cool

Aloha built a nice boat -- we looked at a couple of 'em when we were shopping. They were outside of our budget at the time.
I know that other makers started their number sequence with 101 for hull #1 commonly.
I have an Ericson Yachts-constructed boat and my HIN sez it is #108, when in fact it is hull #8 of 39 total that were built.

Exactly why they chose to do this is open to speculation.

Best,
L

I have an ericson 39b #204 the 5th built the last was 219, total made was 20. I think the sail number 204 looks better than the single number 4.

I'd point out that the Telstar 28's started at hull #301, to account for the approximately 300 Telstar 26s that were previously built.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Thanks all for the replies

It's confirmed! I purchased Hull #101, first production Aloha 34

I was to purchase the boat anyway, but just the fact that it's the first hull makes her feel more special!

They are finishing the deck paint now, interior undergoing restoration

Entire new Rigging with a furlex, engine rebuilt, she sails well and smooth

I'm a happy cat now

Thanks to the help of Perry, from the Aloha 34 network.

Ouyang Boat Works, later to become Aloha Yachts and later Aloha Yachts International made a couple of preproduction Aloha 34’s. These boats had plywood interiors and were used for cabinet patterns and mold tests. The first production boats for sale were made simultaneously in 1975 as Hull 101 and 102. Hull 101was made for the Toronto Boat Show and Hull 102 was made for the Vancouver Boat Show. Hull 102 was fitted with a Faryman diesel engine. I’m not sure what was fitted in Hull 101. This would make your boat the first production boat made! I also saw it advertised on the internet as the “first one made” with links to the Aloha 34 International Owners’ Network website.



Hull 102 is owned by a couple in Campbell River, British Columbia, --name removed--. They are also members of the Aloha 34 International Owners’ Network. There vessel has undergone extensive modification and has sailed offshore extensively.
