Thanks. She's about the only investment that I've got left that's not going through the floor. Think I'll rename her "Blue Chip".
With respect to your 70's comments above, I used to own a 70's Bristol that had pastel blue and yellow inside and plexiglass doors brown in color with a lovely swirl design in it. She was a great boat.

Showing my ignorance here, but what are the make and model of your "old shoe"?

I can't stop looking at the picture.

If you want to know when your P-30 was built , look on the right side of the transon for a series of numbers and letters. Those will give you the actual date when the boat was commissioned. If there are none there the boat is prior to 1973 when all boats were mandated by law to carry the serial no's etc there.
