Where are you sailing? I'm in sw nh. I'd like to see how you are doing with your 470, I have many of the same issues, A little TLC to mine is needed and trying to understand all the lines on shore is quite a job, knowing them while sailing will be exciting.
I am so naïve, on this forum please excuse me, I just did a quick search and learned I have a very special boat that belonged originally to a unbelievably great person, then to a super man of sailboat coaching.
I recently pick-up a 1992 Parker 470 and looking for some help. I can't find the hull number anywhere. It has a IYRU #27897. Is there anyway to cross reference this number to get a hull number or any ideas where I should look, tried all places I know. Thanks sailorrun56
