  • Anyone know where to find the hull identification number on a Dart, or more specifically, a Stampede 20?
  • On my dart 18 the number is on a metal plate pop riveted on the transom AND inside the hull, access though the rear port

    Did you ask Steve F?
  • Can't specifically say for the Stampede,but most Darts have a large handwriten HIN, (some sort of felt pen type, mine is red)n the inside of the hull. As mentioned, you can read it through the rear hatch, flashlight recommended.
    They do not follow the protocol we are used to. The HIN # is just that, a number. Mine has no letters at the beginning, signifying the manufacturer.
    It also does not use the last few digits to denote the year. They just continue sequentially, BUT, as they number each hull, you have to sort of divide by 2 to get the rough number off the production line. You only get an approximation of the year.
    They used to keep records of which hull numbers corresponded to each build #, but many of those were lost when the Dart brand changed hands.

  • ED IS CORRECT, I AM IN PROCESS OF TRAILERING DOWN TO FT LAUDERDALE FLA MY 3RD DART 18, LOST ONE TO IRMA,I ALSO FOUND SERIAL NUMBERS HANDWRITTEN FOR EACH HULL BeHIND REAR HATCHES,on all 3 cats. However, there is a back up way to id cat if you have original sails. There use to be on google under Dart 18 catamaran a record for each sail number giving the year of manufacture.[/email][/email] PS when I get to Fla next week trailer for sale cheap, i already have one in Fla. Will post this site after 11/25/17
