I am looking at an old Laser. A 1971-72 vintage. It's hull number under the bow padeye reads 608 or is it 809? Do you read the number from the port or starboard side?

I think it's from the port but am not really sure. I'll check out our older club boats next time I'm there. They're all European built, though, so they may be different to the Canadian ones.

I finally remembered to check my number orientation. I have hull number 555 and its located under the bow eye. The direction to read it is obvious since its fives.

Mine is read from the starboard side looking to port, and the most significant digit is most aft. The least significant digit is closest to the bow.
