Default A restore in the happening

Hi Sidewinder fans!

I am working on a full restore of what I believe to be a 1981 Super 16.
My wife and I have owned the boat for about 4 years now and ran the rest of the life out of the soggy transom. So for safety of friend and family and not having to dive for the 120 Johnson its dry docked in my garage.

Should I post details in this area or should I move the post to another section?

Other quick question is there is no factory serial number on the hull but as I was removing seats and carpet I found a metal bit with numbers stamped on it. Can someone let me know if this looks like a Winder S\N plate?

Also if it is a S\N plate what can it tell me?

More posts and picks to come during the rebuild.
