Serial number confusion

Thread starter #1
looking at a hull with serial number OQTL0272H708. I know this is a boat manufactured by Vanguard in 2007 for model year 2008. The confusion is the sail number. The cockpit sticker shows 191458 as the sail number. Based on that sticker I think the serial number should be OQTJ1458H708 with the "J" designating 19. Even if the sticker is not correct in the cockpit the "L" in the serial number is throwing me as that would be 21 and the boat is not that new. Any thought?

At some point they stopped coding the sail number into the hull serial number. A 191xxx sail number would seem correct for a 2008 boat.
