The 56 has a curved seat back top, post some photos of the inside of the transom, the back seat, front seat and both dashes and I can tell you the year most likely.

I have no serial number on this boat so it’s hard to say but my thinking is that it’s a 1956 model because my back seat top does not have a curve.

Great to hear we have another East Tennessee Feather Crafter, we hit the lake a lot around here, maybe not as much as the Georgia gang but that’s another story.
