Just found my number

Post by XQSME » Fri Feb 26, 2016 12:44 pm

This morning I took many layers of paint from my Albacore for restoration and found the original number carved into the woodwork....


Can anyone hazard a guess to any history / original name / year of build?


1965 Albacore No 1775 "XQSME"
previous = 1962 Wayfarer W170 "Peter Pan"
Flying Fifteen

I'm sure someone can help more precisely but I had one not too far from that number which I think was mid 60s
Just be aware that there may be two numbers on the hull, one is just a mould number I think.

Albacore Class Association committee members are on the website:

I'm sure one of them will be able to help you.
