How do I go to ID the hull for Startcraft boat?
According to registration it's 14ft Startcraft from 1995 but serial number is not from starcraft. According to websites that decode hull ids it's some kind of "wisconsin custom boats" that is out of business long time ago. I guess they were modifying and re-branding startcrafts?
The hull has riveted holes where the benches used to be that tells me it's most likely jon/utility boat but it has three brackets that support stern (the back wall of the boat where engine attached?) and according to 1995 catalogs there should be only center one. Also the bracing corneers for stern have large stars on them.
Local Starcraft dealer didn't help me due to non starcraft serial number and corporate didn't respond to my inquiry.

Thank you!

My best guess is the state issued a new id number for an old boat in 1995.
What is the id number you have?

Starcraft has all their old catalogs availavle on their site. Take good measurements of your hull and compare to the catalogs.

Those large triangles supporting the transom are called "knees" and the previous owner may have added them because they added a much BIGGER motor than was the OEM rating.

Tough boats ... (I have 2 of them ...) and easy to repair w/ new bucked solid rivets.

It's WSZ38127F606
Yes the address for manufacturer ID from serial number says "MIC FOR STATE ISSUED HINS".
After looking through boat builds threads I think it looks the most like Seafarer 60s
