Moved up to a Pacific 22, need help?

Hi guys,
Well after much debate and searching i finally found my next boat. Pacific 22 with 140hp mermaid, usual kit, but recent new tubes, however there is no transom plate with hull number and year etc.

I know where it should be, above the stern drive, but mine has a large stainless oblong plate fastened in its place..( see photo, note old tubes have now been replaced with mk2 versions)

Does any Pacific owners know of other ways to find out its year? Or who previously owned it, apparently it came from the Isle of lewis??
Cant be that many halmatics out there? Can they??
Any help would be grateful..

Congratulations on your purchase. She looks good.
The best chap in the country to help you in the search for the history of your Pac 22 is Terry Holtham.
He traces the history of all ex military Pac 22's now in private hands.
Have fun with her.
I have PM'd you with Terry's email address.

HI
On my PAC there is the boat number embossed into the consol on the lip where it is screwed to the deck, mine has also got the same number embossed into the cover at the back of the consol.
hope this helps
Ian

HI
Had a look at mine today, the number on the consol is directly below the fuel filler and on the cover behind the consol it's stbd side to the rear, my numbers are a mirror image.

Looks like the transom has been built-up on yours and the large stainless plate has been used as re-inforcement.
Wasn`t this boat on Findafishingboat.com? Have fun, they`re great bits of kit.

It may also me marked on the fuel tank but you may need a mirror and torch to read it.

You have until 29th of Sep to download a copy of the Halmatic user manual from here, after that the website will be down. Feel free to help yourself to a copy:

Hi there,
is the Pacific22 the next step for avon SR 5.4 owners?
Is there a remarkable difference between them?

More grey - check
More gaffer tape - check
More splashes - check
