We bought our hull and deck in 1976 and hopefully our boat will be complete in 2009. What is the year for all legal papers, registration, insurance, etc. :confused:

Did the hull have a VIN number? (Transom upper starboard side) If so I think that the year coded in the VIN is the year to be used for registration etc. Perhaps not unlike buying a 1976 automobile that had never been on the road. It is still registered as a '76. A call to you DMV should get the "real" answer.

It is likely that your boat will be a 1976 boat, since that is what the HIN number that was issued to it will reflect. You really should talk to a maritime lawyer to get the specifics right.
