I am trying to identify this boat.
The only "plate" we've found is under the transom cover, there is a hole in the plate where someone put a screw.
The part which can still be read is "ST 44 Pi??apple" There is a number in 2" digits on the pocket the keel is pulled up into for trailering.
The number is 11326 and is covered with resin. We have measured the length of the hull at 19', beam (widest point) is a scant 6'7".
The rudder is about 47" top to bottom.
I need to see something about this boat, I've never had or used a sailboat until I was given this one. I can tell it needs a lot of minor repairs; but I need to know what to look for in the way of "major repairs" visually there doesn't appear to be any hull damage. There is a pair of square 'holes' in the stern, one is covered and one is open.HELP!
It's a Lightning Class Sailboat. Over 16000 have been built world wide, but few were built by Clark.

If you go to class site you should be able to figure out what year it was built.
