Sweetest, best behaved boat I ever sailed on was a Hinckley Bermuda 40. Wish I could own one of these beauties.
Warren, I could not agree more!!! Throughout my teen years and off and on thereafter I sailed with my parents on Lola, their black-hulled Hinckley B40. We sailed her everywhere - I sailed with my dad and his sailing buddies on three Marion to Hamilton races, and when my dad retired and it came time to ship or sail her down to the Alabama coast, we sailed her - offshore almost all the way, only put into port once down in the Keys - one of the most enjoyable sails I've ever been on and the last time I sailed with my dad.
