Re: How about a Hardin 45 Thread

I am aware of this normal location of the HIN, (12 letters and numbers), 'top starboard corner of transom' there is nothing there so I am looking for the hull/production number (3 or 5 numbers) that was burned into the wood frame in two locations during construction, there is no number in the primary location, on the engine compartment stringer so I am looking for anyone that knows the secondary location of this number on a Hardin 44 Bounty 1979.
Any ideas?

Re: How about a Hardin 45 Thread

We are extremely Excited to be a part of the Hardin family… we being my wife, 4 1/2-year-old daughter and myself.

We will be having a survey done on a 1979 Hardin 45 in a couple weeks. Assuming all goes well and we follow through with purchase, we will be moving aboard shortly there after and giving the live aboard life a try for a couple years.

I do not know the hull number but I do know that at one time the boat was named Celebration and for sale in Deltaville Virginia. Now named Yolo by seller, the boat was in Indiantown not too long ago and currently is in Stuart hanging out until we hopefully become the new owners. I do not believe we will change the name once she becomes ours.

Would love to have the chance to correspond with anyone else that has or had a Hardin sailboat.

Re: How about a Hardin 45 Thread

I have just joined this group, because I just discovered it. I am a current owner of a Hardin 45 hull number 95, and my wife and I have been living aboard for over 27 years.

A great number of the questions I have seen on this thread, I have repaired, fixed or replaced. If any one is interested, I have a web page that is a bit out of date, but many projects are covered there, but not allowed to post it. You should be able to use a good search engine, and search for Hardin yacht DREAMAWAY and come up with it.

I will be happy to answer any questions that other Hardin owners might have. BTW, I still have the original Ford (Ebro) 4D220 Dagenham engine.
