Something has always confused me about Yip Yap. Its registered as a 1958, and if you track the hull numbers it kinda fits. Yet it has a 1956 engine on it, and all the details as well. And when I purchased it, I was told it was all original. The more I could see, even the varnish was original.
So in the comments the other day on yip yap, John G commented that he had the same issue regarding his 1958 Lymann and a 56 engine on it? So. Did they make too many 56 Engines? Or my thought is. The 56 engines were made late in 1956 delivered to the factory? Dealer? And then the boats were made in 1957, and thus a small overlap. The colors are very confusing, Red white, white red, green on lower Hp ??????
Car dealers and boat dealers would play this game all the time. Even today. The 2022’s will be out in September? Its all so confusing. Many times, its a simple hardware change, or color change? And yet here it is 60 years? 59 years or 63 years confusing us all.
Here is my thought. The green on the 56 looks a whole lot cooler than that dark red. So it stays a 56, thats on a 58. thats 62 no matter how old it really is. Right?
