Posters are right. PVC boat, and temperature and humidity are critical for a good bond. Mine is a 2001. Last 2 digits of serial usually are the year. Mine: 01.
2345 looks odd. Should be more digits. Maybe someone changed it??
How about a picture of the plate? Serial plate is on the outside.
i think yours is newer than mine because you have the speed tube valves on the transom. That came later than mine.
Good luck.

Hi All, sorry for the delay in replying, Hope you all had a great Xmas & New Year, Xmas now out of the way, yippe, kids had their toys, time to get my boat sorted, Glued etc,I have all the equipment to do it, MEK, Acetone, 2 part glue, new valves, just need a break in the British weather, and I just hope the repairs are not as bad to do as it sounds listening to peoples comments,
Northern Pike I have attached a photo of my Serial plate which is located inside the boat, I seem to be coming to a dead end on the year of the boat, Can you tell me any more info about my boat? year? by looking at the photo? Thanks in advance to all

am I looking for a serial number approximately the same length of a car chassis number? if so, where would i find it? as I do not recall seeing any other plates / numbers anywhere on the boat, I would have to double check,

I don't have any pics and my boat is rolled up for the winter. Mine has a small long narrow plate on the outside, just behind the one pictured. It has a longer serial number on it, the last 2 digits of which indicate the year. I can show you in the Spring. :^)

I suggest you find a place indoors and heated to do your repairs. Temperature and humidity are critical.

Thanks Northern pike, I will have a look this week, I am going to have to wait until the weather gets better as I have my boat in a garage but have no access to electric or any method of heating the garage up etc and the garage is a few miles away from my house, I plan to hopefully start cleaning the glue off this week so the weather is probably irrelevant I take it for preparation? so at least when the weather gets warmer I can instatly get on with the re glueing,

If I had my way I would have the boat in the house to repair, lol (Mrs is not happy with my outboard being in the spare room as it is) It is the only way to keep those toe rag thieves mitts off it, she would have a heart attack if she seen my boat in the house, sure it would fit in my living room if I move the sofas around, lol

Well, I don't see anything wrong with having a boat and motor in the house. And Mmm that glue smells good! I just found a pic. You can see the number plate on the right at the very top of the frame. It still has the greenish protective plastic on it.
