Welcome Fergus, Carol and Valkyrie X,

Hull numbering has been a recurrent topic through the years. Bernie Boykin wrote about the hull numbering scheme which you may have found on the site. In case you haven't, or others are interested, here it is:

www.whitbybrewersailboats.com/the-whitby...-association-history

At the very end is a HIN breakdown:

Hull number example: ZWB 42 156 0980.
ZWB42 = Whitby 42
156 = Serial Number
0980 = Year Built (Sept. 1980)
The hull number is molded into the upper stbd corner of the transom.

My interpretation of your number is that hull 054 was built in January of 1975.

I also recall some info from Doug S. about the imposition of a "standardized" HIN during the boat's manufacture. I would attribute the WBW versus ZWB to that.

Hey, Gregg,old buddy.
So are you back from the islands now? Any chance you'll be around Daytona beach?

Thanks for the info... I did remember seeing that somewhere but, as usual I was looking in the wrong places at the wrong time!

Hope we can get together sometime.

Fergus & Carol.
