Trying to determine boat number

I recently boat a 1979 Custom Flex Scot and trying to determine the boat number.  It came with two sets of sails with two different numbers on them.  There is no number on the top of the centerboard trunk.  Below is the HIN number.

CTF033960779

 

Thanks

Call Factory

Did you call the factory?  They know the history of most boats, including the customflex.

Do you know the previous owners name?

The boat may have been registered and/or the owner may have been a class member, and the FSSA would know the boat number.

Also, did you look at the numbers on the sails?

There is a Customflex on

There is a Customflex on Caveat Emptor that is from 1979 and it is 3343.  Is it possible that the 3396 in your hull number is the boat number?

Does that match either of your Sail numbers?

again, the factory would know if Customflex used that hull numbering scheme.

Once you know your boat number, you can order a new centerboard cap with the number, in mahogany or fiberglass, with the number in it.

Actually one of the two main sails did have the number 3369.  that would make sense from the HIN number. 

 

Thanks for the help everyone
