I know the Custom Craft gang and the Glastron gang have tried to track down the pre-1973 date codes in serial numbers, not sure which digit it is that tells the tale though....?

Quite the tease Fantm, anxious to see or hear more! :laugh:

Every manufacturer had their own system, if any at all. This was pre 1973 before the mandated US Coast Guard MIC system came into being. So if all you have is a number or code, it will do no good unless you know the manufacturer and if someone has cracked that code.

Looks like it could be an Addictor from Southern CA.

It has a lot of GW Invader look to it. According to the brochure in the FG Library, they did make a 10 ft model.

OK. Another tidbit. The first 3 characters of an HIN are the manufacturer's code. TGO belongs to Tide River USA of Tampa, FL. A quick Google search came up with little info.
