100 x 280 are the dimensions of the 2001 / 2002 model.
2001 had a diamond tail, 2002 similar but slightly rounder.
2003 was the first compact model and was only 255 long

IMO, the 2001 was the best, 2002 next, 2003 last

regards,

rod

There were two Start models in 2003, a Start Small 255 cm long 180 ltrs 100 cm wide, and a Start Large 265 cm long 210 ltrs 110 cm wide (details taken from 2003 catalog).

The 2001 Start had a thick, white, half-moon, short Tuttle box centerboard (I have the 2001). The next "centerboard" change was to a thinner, black, deep Tuttle box centerboard with about the same depth but was longer front to back, extended further toward the stern. I think that change occurred in 2002. The 2003 Start had a 22 cm oblong, deep Tuttle centerboard. The next "centerboard" change was use of the "clipperbox" retractable daggerboard. I think that change occurred in 2004, but that is only a guess.

So which Start do I own according to the fins that came with it http://screencast.com/t/FuQ1xZe6Xicn or the hull number. The seller told me it was 2002 but on the Starboard website seems like the center fin has a different shape

Hi jpon2,
I've notified the Starboard IT folks about the broken links on the archives.
As far as the center fin that you have, it was never a really sucessful design.
Not sure what year we had those (2001/2002/2003) but we never used them in the "A Taste of
Windsurfing" program as they made the Starts very hard to tack and jibe.
Better to find a shallow water similar to the one you have for the back of the board and put that in the
center fin slot as well.
Our best configuration was a 38 cm True Ames "Stubbie" in the rear fin slot and the std. 41 cm
Start rear fin in the center fin slot.
If you email me your hull's serial number I can probably trace the exact lineage of your board.
I only need the letters and numbers until you get to the "000's.
That will give us the year model and month/year it was prodiuced.
