Look for the boat number on either the hog or thwart. More reliable than using the sail number incase the sails come from another boat. Someone can then look it up in the year book for you.

Look on the thwart there should be a number carved or stamped on it. That number will provide all sorts of information including the year built. Post the number here ans someone willlook it up no doubt.

If, by clinker you mean she has ribs and rivets she is pre no 500 and therefore before 1953 or 4. But if you mean clinker with glued-ply then post 1954 and upto present day really. There should be a number on the thwart and then, before you take her on a date, we can tell all. Failing that , what is her beam? (not a nice question to ask a lady on a first date though) a picture might help too.
