 Still not clear. Your failing example was:

   identify(1:1165, hatvalues(scireg3),row.names(sciach))

 So are you saying that hatvalues(scireg3) is of length 1164? What you really want is for hatvalues to return NA in the places where you have missing data. identify is quite happy with NA values - try:

 > x=1:10
 > y=runif(10);y[5]=NA
 > plot(x,y)
 > identify(x,y)

 If you can't change hatvalues to do this, then you'll just have to remove the corresponding values of 1:1165 so that it is of length 1164. So something like:

 okdata = !
