Pros:
Cons:

We purchased S/V CARIAD 1 in 2001 and sail her in the coastal waters of Nova Scotia. She is very forgiving and stable, with excellent sea keeping design.
The Halman Horizon 27 is a fin keel skeg mounted external rudder with a rounded stern (North Sea) design. This model has an inline galley to starboard and a dinette to port, aft there is a nav station to port and quarter berth to starboard. Head is next forward with hanging locker opposite followed by Vberth and storage in forepeak. These models are sloop rigged. I am interested in communicating with other owners.

Pros: very comfortable cruising accomodations
Cons: helm and turning radius difficult in tight marina

we have just acquired our Horizon 27 and are on a learning curve. The first thing is that our boat has never had a boom vang. Is this normal on the Halmans. Is there advantage to adding one? Another thing that strikes me as odd is that the deck scuppers drain down plastic tubing to what appears to be thru hulls below the waterline without seacocks. Again is this normal on this vessel? We will be sailing the Gulf Islands for the most part and looking forward to hearing from any other owners of this boat.

Pros:
Cons: underwater thruhulls(deck drains) are plastic with no valves

finding that the boat is showing some issues with delamination of gelcoat from the glass fibre. This could be the epoxy simply deteriorating from the glass. This is below the waterline. Have as yet not addressed the deck drain issue. The boat sails well in moderate breezes remaining dry and with manageable helm. Incredible storage room onboard for summer cruising and very comfortable for two.
