5. Registration and issue of NEW sail number.

It is strongly recommended that you have a measurer check the hull measurements
(section A of the measurement schedule) before completion of the boat.
(A sail number may be issued if the measurer is satisfied that the hull conforms to the
Class Rules.)

Take the completed boat to an appointed SAS Dabchick measurer for checking. A copy of
the measurement schedule is included with the handbook.

On completion of the schedule, post it direct to the SAS for consideration by the DASA
Technical Committee.
If the boat conforms with the class rules, the measurement certificate will be issued.
