Re: Found Sail Boat in my Back yard
If it is a laser, then the hull number is on the transom (flat back end of the boat). Typically right side; typically the last two numbers are the year.
If it is a laser, the mast will be in two pieces, the boom one. You would also have a centerboard, rudder, and tiller. Without a sail, however, the resale value will be low. A new sail costs around $500+; a fully equipped older laser in CA, in good condition (solid, no flex in the decks, no leaks in mast step, etc), small trailer, $1000-$1500.
