Default Baron Help!?!?!?

I have a 1983 Baron 190. I bought the boat under the impression that it was a Powerplay 185XLT however I am now aware of the differences and believe it is a Baron - rounded keel (not pointed like the Powerplay) and the gas tank in the floor. Also, Power Quest has advised that they did not manufacture this particular boat.

Anyway, I have the hull ID number on the ownership but cannot find it on the hull on the stern corner where most ID numbers are found.

There are a few Baron owners on this site and I have read some of the posts. Can any Baron expert tell me where I can find the hull ID number and any other important info? I do have a jpeg of the original Baron specs.

Many thanks...

i have a 1978 baron it is a great boat.i think a 1983 could be one of the first xlt's. the first powerplay xlt's had a round keel also. is the hatch wood or fiberglass? the fuel tank in the floor is a much better ride then in the bow. and the barons have no hook in the end of the hull. the id on my is on the right rear. pm tommymonza on this site his brother was the builder. hope this helps.

Thanks Todd. You are right - after reading tommymonza's post on another thread on this site - because my boat is an '83 it was probably the one of the first Powerplays made with the Baron molds. My hatch is fiberglass.

It is a sweet ride. Pretty much all original and near perfect condition.
