  7. To answer your question those fleet leet numbers 1743 and 1744 were chosen by the Community connector as they chose those fleet numbers as the community connector has been doing oddball numbers for years they don’t have to go in order like from 1700-1701 they do oddball numbers at random here in bangor maine
