We received the information below from the son of the builder:

My father (George W. Carr) built every one of them (1100) by hand – that particular one 44, was his personal boat for a couple years until he changed the styling a bit. The 44 is quite literal – that was the 44th Star Cat built. It’s extraordinary to see one in such shape. The boats were built in a shop in Jackson, Mich. That particular one was made in the first location which was very tiny and I was only 2 yrs old at the time. Just a little history in case you had interest – I haven’t seen one in excellent shape in quite some time.
