I know the Pro Angler 12 was released in July 2012, but the question is in regards to whether Hobie sold them as 2013 models (like automakers start selling the next years models in the fall)or were they 2012's?
And are Hobie's serial numbers easily read to know the date of manufacture?
Reason I ask is I know someone selling a 2013 PA12 that I am considering purchasing. I know he has had it since at least January 2013, but have a feeling it was purchased back in 2012. . .when the MSRP was $350 lower than it is now. He's asking $2500 for the boat (no extras), but I'm not about to pay him the full price he paid for the boat a year ago if it was indeed purchased before the price increase!
