The 16xxx number puts it in early 1970's, other number is a build number.

I think I've commented on this question on FB, saying much the same thing. I'm assuming #RichC69 has not had any joy from the Enterprise CA and is casting further afield?

I appreciate this post is over a year old,  but I too am trying to age an old Enterprise / possibly a 404 that my son and I have recently bought.  It has a makers plate on the transom that has a hull serial number of 1508 / 9.  The rear thwart has 16174 carved into it and one set of sails has number to match this number.  I have been told on another forum that 1508 is too old a number to be a GRP Enterprise,  hence the query regarding it being a 404.  If anyone can shed any light on the age / history of it,  I'd be interested to hear from you.  When I'm next at the club I will take a photo of the makers plaque.


My first boat was Ent 16168 - pretty sure it was built in '72/73
