Re: rudders and #s


Did you look in Bob Schimmel's Tectips pages and on our E-Mail Archives
page? They are both links you can click on on the opening or index page of
the San Juan 23 Internet Webpages (See below in my signature block). I think
you will find some answers to your questions there.

Do you have a registration ID number for your boat? In most states you have
to register your boat and the title will have the HIN (Hull Identification
Number). On the San Juan 23 it is found on a plate attached to or embedded
in the right side of the transom. I am not sure where it is on the San Juan
24. If you give that to us we can answer your question about boat and sail
numbers. I thought I had posted an e-mail answer to that question in our
E-mail archives, but just checked and it isn't there, so I am going to type
it out and place it there as soon as I finish this e-mail. And I will send
it out to the E-maiul list so you will get it there briefly.
