Thank God for the Board. 

  Purchased the Vampire early 2010 at Blanchtown S.A. and have spent the last year on a full rebuild (she needed it) - replaced stringers, deck and transom repair all done by yours truly with heavy cloth/marine ply stainless fixings. (Thank you Nathan for the cheap glass/resin/advice) .  Original badges but not much else - finished in two pack white all over with chrome trim and intend to add some flag blue detail soon.
  40 HP oil injected Mariner (never seen salt water) with a quick prop, full internal LED, twin bilge (independently switched).  Waiting on new screen, f/finder, sound when the wife stops hating me.
 
  Question. If I dig up some photos of the reno (I have recorded everything on disk), can anybody help me I.D. the year model please?

  I was under the impression that it was a '77' but after reading a few posts here about the Vampire series me thinks otherwise

all stringers and transom wood injected with West Marin Products (pricey though) - it sets  the wood rock hard.  Transom repair keyed to existing with stainless rods on the inboard side/downward and each layer (4) was glassed to the inboard (starboard) side for about 2/300mm on the inside. I believe a stronger fix than most repairs done from the outside.
