Helms 24 Information?

algernon, disregard the reply from jeff. helms yachts were produced in irmo s.c. from the early 70''s until the mid 80''s. jack helms was a funiture builder who also buit y-flyers and lightnings. in the early 70''s he basicly copied the catalina 22 but added 3 feet to the cockpit. around 76 he started to produce the 24, which was designed by a john holmes,ha ha. i own two 24''s and though ive raced, and owned many other boats my 1981 helms 24 is still my baby, even thoug she is no speedster.(on par with a catalina 25 speed wise but much better quality wise with a really nice interior. helms also built a 27(a streached 24) a 30 and a 33 of which only 11 were built i believe. do a google search for helms,24,sailboat and see what you come up with. good luck. michael
