Any recent pictures?

I just bought a 1970, at least I think it is a 70.
Is there some logic to the hull number?

Last two numbers of the Hull ID number will give the year of manufacture. Lets see a couple pics!

Jo,

I can share this as a prelude:
There are several versions of hull ID references and some of them differ due to various factors; when the list began, who made the list, how the factory was keep and assigning records (very poor at best from all I have seen), and folks that have responded with another format of hull ID placement entries on the day they were molded, etc.

I have a common reference for the 12 digit nomenclature assignments and your hull ID does not fit for making 100% fit. From all I can tell, the reference chart is applicable to 1978 - 1986 but there again that time span is just a guess from trending of what I have seen. This is not a fact.

I hesitate to post or even try and decode but I can say this with certainty from all I have seen:

MCB = Mastercraft Boat Company

last digits: 73 = the year model equating to 1973

There are four of the numerical digits that are a unique serial number for that boat.

Two more digits are for boat model (skier, prostar, etc.) and another for the engine type (5.7, etc.) (typically alpha).

To fit the reference I have seen, several of the numbers you listed should be alpha characters, etc...so I reserve further assessment. I could take a guess but I may not be correct.

.

I will say this; You know the engine make (Commander, etc.) and the boat model type (Skier), correct? So all that leaves is the digits for the unique hull serial number (and possibly the mold number or letter; another variable). I can tell you which digit location those numbers should be, so essentially you have the hull ID information through a process of elimination of the other known factors.

This is all the information found in the hull ID.
