Vintage Hull Question

Thread starter #1
Is is safe to say that a fiberglass Sunfish hull with the old style rudder hardware and the storage compartment aft of the cockpit is always a 1971 hull? There is on for sale in my area but no builders plate with serial number and no Hull I.D. number. I seem to recall that 1971 was the only year where the old style rudder rig came with the storage compartment feature.

That's about it. Storage compartment introduced in 1971 and Aluminum Rudder
bracket in 1972. Hull i.d. on transom in last half of 1973. 1971 Serial Numbers
80000 - 91000.
