What sail number should she have?  Determining the sail number for your Mutiuneer is not a clear cut process, unless of course you have a new Nickles Mutineer!  The following is a conversation with Gib Charles.  Gib is a many time Class National Champion and Class Historian:

I like sail numbers that indicate the relative age of the boat, or generation.  The hull numbers don’t always do that.  (Wellcraft started all over again, and I was told they numbered all the sailboats that came out of their factory in sequence, not just each model.  It looks like TMI started over with 101XX.)  I picked sail number 515 for my 1983 Wellcraft because that was the actual hull number (WEL D 0515 M83B-15).  Now I wish I had numbered it #5515, the 5XXX indicating a generation.
 
Correlating somewhat with what we see in the database on the Yahoo site, I’d suggest:
Chrysler
1-4599
Texas Marine International (TMI)
4500-4999
Wellcraft
5000-5999
Gloucester 
6000-6999
Cardinal    
7000-7999
Nickels
8000-
 
The Chrysler and TMI sail numbers in the database share 4300 – 4600, so it’s hard to draw a line between those generations, but going forward I would suggest 4500 as a generational division of sail numbers.

Nickels was deliberate in starting over with a new “thousand” that we were confident hadn’t been used before.
