I've just polished JJT's maker's plaque back to legibility and I don't see an obvious hull number on it.  Does anyone know how to interpret the numbers on the plaque?  I'll try to post a picture sometime.  One number looks rather obviously like date of manufacture or date of launch (lower right corner) but there's another alphanumeric code in the lower left that I'm guessing is some kind of serial number.  I'd just like to know which hull I am in the series!  My mainsail says 25 on it, but heaven only knows where that sail came from :-)  might well have been bought used, off some completely different boat.

Is there a registry anywhere of JJT's Contessas?  I think this one may at one time have been known as Achilles.  Not that it matters I suppose, the boat sails just as well whether I know her history or not, but I'm curious Sleepy

Look at the Hull Identification Number (HIN).  It should be something like ZJT02nnnmmyy, where:
ZJT:  J.J. Taylor's builder id
02:  Contessa 32
nnn:  hull number
mm: month built
yy: year built
