On the top right corner of the transom. It is part of your hull ID number.
Here's how to interpert it:

According to my title, my hull would be #8257 built in December of 1977.

I was expecting the hull number to much lower based on the info at WHO OWNS WHAT Capital yachts Newport Gulf Neptune sailboats

257 would be more in line with the dates on the other boat. Could the 8 mean something else?

kpdii...your guess looks reasonable to me. Those digits are a serial number...not the hull build number so the mfr. can designate any identifier they wish...my guess is that the "8" stands for 28 and the 257 is the actual build # of that hull. I'm sure other newport owners will be able to give you better feedback...but i think you have the thing scoped out well!
