Question What is the age of your Boat?

I have a question regarding this question - how do you establish the age of a boat? We purchased our hull and deck in 1976. The only water it has seen is when it rains or get a washing. We are hoping it will see the Pacific Ocean SOON. So, how old is our boat? Thanks for any answer.

My ship was built in 1935. I will never be able to outlive the ship, even if I get the same care and maintenance.

Our sailing boat was launched for the first time in 1939, she is a one off, bilge keel and has a lot of the original equipment (spars, layout below, fittings) she is a lot of fun and very comfortable. The original designer and part builder, built three, the first in the mid twenties, out of wood 25ish ft long, she is currently in a floating museum (the fixings are getting a bit questionable) then ours in the late thirties 48ft long and then the third in the sixties, 50ft long.
The first two are in the UK, the third is on the west coast America (having been sailed to Australia and back to the USA) the second two out of steel.
Sorry can’t seem to post a photo

Only young still

Our baby was 'born' in 1974, so she's not really a lovely vintage lady like some of the posts. She is an Ericson 39, originally registered in the US, sailed around the world twice by the original owners, then sold in Aus when health issues forced them to return to US. Their loss was our gain, and we love sailing her and living aboard.

Mostly still original inside, with the odd addition (a pantry and a small locker) and some white paint (lots of dark timber inside originally, and painted some bulkheads white to lighten her up)

Still have one sail with Ericson logo on it, even though we've owned her for 8 years now. Speaks volumes for finding a good sailmaker! Have some minor problems with US fittings/nuts & bolts in Aus and had to change 110V power to 240
