How to find the story: PC-14.2 Capri with a hull number of 1854?

Thread starter #1
I am attempting to learn more about a CP-14.2, Hull number: 1854. The boat was abandoned and I am considering adopting it. I believe that it is a Model 1. Can the year built be determined from the hull number? I am wondering if I could use the main sail from my C-Lark 14 interchangeably? Not sure what I will find when I go look at it as far as the cable riggings, condition of the hull, etc. any pointers would be appreciated to bring this one home... where would I get parts? thnx, Randy
