WL & F says that they can not guess on a year for the boat and that i would have to provide some sort of proof of the year. does anyone know how to do this? the current owner has tried to find out before through mirrocraft and he said all they did was send him a sales brochure. WL & F said not having the HIN was not a problem because i could have it inspected and everything would be fine but no year was unacceptable.
it has the production # on the left transom stamped E24-1044-58S... can that be used to find the date??
If it is registered in Wisconsin, and is registered with a date, use that registration paper.
If it is not, have the seller give you a bill of sale with a date of manufacture on it, and use that. If he thinks it's a '75, then it is a '75...
