Re: What is this?

My first boat, a 22 footer made in 1972, had the HIN inside the cabin way back under the cockpit. It was U.S.-made but you might try crawling way back and looking up and around. I only found it because I crawled back there to remove all the flotation foam to give everything a good cleaning.

Re: What is this?

From what I read on google (quick search), the boat was mass produced in Poland from early 70s to early 80s and desribed as a capable coastal cruiser. Apparently, not sinkable due to floatation compartments filled with foam. In many cases owners have removed the foam to gain additional storage space. You might have a hard time finding VIN, as it simply may not have one. Boat was manufactured in two versions - centreboard only and with shoal keel/centreboard (better version) - seems this is the version you have.

I think the search has ended. The similarities are visible, even the inside issimilair to one of the pictures on google. Just to be sure, does anyone know if this boat has another hin or something else somewhere (not on the transom)?

And thanks for all your help.

Re: What is this?

True, but if you go to the owners association page there are definitely different versions of the same boat. I couldn't find anything about a centerboard version though. But it does say that 70% of them were exported to Europe with most ending up in Northern Europe.

I bet you could find out if a centerboard version existed by contacting the owners group. There are also pics of the inside that you could compare. They actually look like really cool boats from looking over the different versions.

Not according to Sailboatdata. Their information, though, isn't always complete. Usually it's accurate (that is, the data they print is accurate), but as I said, the information isn't always complete.

Re: What is this?

But is there a version with a keel/ centerboard and hung on rudder?

That is what caught my eye. Not very common to have such a long window on such a small boat. Really a nice looking boat to me actually.

Re: What is this?

HIN on our Malo (Swedish) is on starboard stern quarter about a metre or so from the stern.
