Hi. Might be on Ontario Yachts Albacore. I have an ex military trading dinghy with a similar plate on my transom which was built by OY. I think the Stock No. right at the top suggests it's inventory, and the English and French language suggests Canadian government inventory.

Hope that helps.

Thanks John... that does make sense.

Our sail doesn't have any numbers... just AL... is that another indication of it being in the military?

Your sail number *should*, if its anything like mine, be carved into the cockpit side of the transom, on the raised stiffener linking the rudder gudgeon and pintle. A 4 digit number, I am guessing in the range of 74xx and 75xx based on the year of manufacture.
