    I have a laser with sail number 13040. Its still going strong and used a few times each year. But I'm trying to find out when it was built.

    Can anyone tell me the year it was manufactured?

    Thanks

    Is there a serial number on the transom of your laser? The last two digits will be the model year.

    A sail number that low was definitely built sometime in the early 70s. The early boats don't have a serial number on the stern like the current boats, but they do have the sail number imprinted under the bow eye.

    I would guess 1972 - 1973 ?

    Used to own 52547 bought in 1976 or so.

    Yes, the Laser FAQ indicates that your boat is from the 1971-'74 era.
    Time to celebrate its 40th year...

    Found the serial number. PFS130400174

    So it must be 1974

    Thanks for your help
