Hi John,
I would contact Rita at PSC in NC and ask her about your hull number,
she has been with the company for quite some time and has a data base of vessels. She is always very helpful.

I believe the "ABC" reference is correct. The hull identification number should be in a sequence that starts with the maker's name, then model, then the hull number, another set of letters/numbers, and finally the year the boat was built. So, in the case of a 40, the number looks like: PSC40046C101, which equals Pacific Seacraft 40, hull number 046 (for 37s, that first zero disappeared when production went into the hundreds), C1 (the meaning of which I do not know), and 01, signifying the boat was built in 2001.

Hope that helps.

Anybody know what the C1 stands for?

C1 means that the hull was laid up in March, 2001. The 01 at the end means that the boat is an 01 model. The CG uses a model year (like new cars), which changes in August. You can actually have a 2001 model that was built in 2000.

Builder ID and dates must follow the USCG pattern. The hull number part is encoded any way the builder wants. It can be simple as 1 = 1, 2 = 2 or whatever they felt like at the time. To decode it, you probably need to ask the builder.

Section 1.2 of the attached PSC 37 manual (from back in the 1980s or 90s, I think) has info on the PSC numbering.
