    Thanks for the HIN, I'm guessing it's an 18. We have one other 18 with a similar HIN: GPL11284C585 with a BMW I/O power in Oregon. 1985 must have been a bad year for GP workers in charge of HIN's because they do not follow any logic. The 19 has a weird HIN indicating it was built at the end or beginning of a model year 81-82.

    I looked up Toland and they were in business from 1994 to 1996 in Kent, WA, where C-dories are/were made. The boat in your photograph with the AKZ Hin is from Alaska Homemade Boats on Benson Blvd. in Anchorage. CG indicates the business began 8.30.2014, no notice of closing. Maybe they got some hulls and finished them in Alaska.
    The screwed-on brass plate HIN is what some WA state owners may have to do with the new state regulations on numbering. Binford figured out a work-around and kept his existing HIN by deleting the last one or two digits from the original HIN on his registration documents. Clever man!

    Damn, that's heart-breaking! Like the elephant graveyard of GlasPlys! Does your friend intend to try to sell them, or does he just want them out of his yard?

    JJC and Nova, when you guys get your storage spaces figured out, I'll come up. We'll roam around and pick up some of these old boats that might still have a little life left. I'm not working, and my wife would just as soon have me out of the house. What do you say?

    Ya its kind of depressing, all are in disrepair. They are all for sale-trying to clear the property. I dont think he wants much for any of them other than the 23 open. Pm or call me if anyone has any interest.
