Niagara 26

I also have a Hinterhoeller Niagara 26. Ours is hull 002 built in 1979. There is not much available on the net about this model ... especially inside pics.

There is the start of a web site at www.niagara26.org. The creator of this site has his email address on the page and belongs to a club that has an active class of 10+ Niagara 26 boats.

It seems to be a good boat but I guess you can only say that if you owned one for about 5 or more years.

Good luck,

Mike

Niagara 26

I purchased a Niagara 26 in Wilson, NY 3 years ago and really enjoy it. We race the boat regularly and have been very successful. I''ve put some work into the boat (replaced windows, installed an 8:1 outhaul in the boom etc.) but, I think I enjoy that part to. Very happy with the boat and would consider a larger Niagara in the future.

Niagara 26

What year is your Niagara 26? Is it Hinterhoeller, Goman or Halman? Please send email regarding what you feel to be strengths and weaknesses of this boat. I just purchased 79 Niagara 26 by Hinterhoeller last fall and I am looking for any input I can get.

I am curious about cockpit floor (how well has yours held up and what did you do about it); outboard arrangement (how awkward is it?). Backstay - How well is it anchored? as well as anything else I should know....

Sailormann will become famous soon enough
If you are the first owner of a boat with a synthetic, cored hull, and if you take excellent care of it - they are great boats... I would tend to agree with the surveyor though, when it comes to an older boat with a balsa core and unknown provenance. There are too many unknowns, and determining whether or not the core is wet is a more detailed proce$$ than the survey of a solid hull.

Gavrock-

Generally, it is considered poor net etiquette to revive old threads. This thread would qualify as it was dormant for over six years before you came along. It would probably be far more useful for you and others interested for you to start a new thread announcing that there is a Niagara website.

Sailormann-

Did you check the dates on the posts on this thread.. its a dead thread... over six years old.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
