HIN comes up euro f3, but it isnt. 91 sunsetter

Recommended Posts

When I insured my boat, the hull id shows the boat is a euro f3, but I've seen them, and mine is not like that. Also, when I look in the tmc resources, it doesn't list a normal sunsetter, only euro f3 for 1991. I've been meaning to ask about this for a while.

I'd hate to order skins based on my HIN and get the wrong ones.

Pics?

Who are you ordering skins from using a 1991 HIN?

This is the boat. Clearly not an f3. I'm not ordering skins at this point, and I don't know if anyone is doing them by the hull ID anymore, but if I have that option I would prefer to

Good looking boat! Yep, for sure not a Euro.

Just a thought but if it were mine and I was doing a complete interior I'd lose some of the stitching that creates the ribbed effect and go with smooth color-block panels instead. Fewer areas of potential failure and a less dated look. That would probably require finding someone local and working with them on a redesign rather than relying on a HIN and ordering in exact replacements.

Either way good luck.

I've thought of redesigning it, but thinking gets me in trouble, lol. Too much of that and I might as well get a new boat

Thats too old to order replacement skins by HIN. You can however remove the skins and have new ones made using the original as patterns.
