Umm really? Harley Davidson was purchased by AMF in 1969 and sold in 1981 NOT Hinckley.

Hatteras Yachts WAS owned by AMF. Hattaras begins with "H" but is spelled differently than Hinckley....

Bain Capitol, who now owns Hinckley, is a PRIVATE equity firm NOT publicly traded.... My wife's cousin worked for Mitt then left to be Mitt's gubernatorial campaign finance director. They are still a private company..

main sail, do you understand I was posting about H-D and nothing else? I was posting in response to another poster, only I knew the history about Harley-Davidson. On Hinckely I knew they had been bought by a private equity firm at one time, but didn't know enough of the details to comment

I did not know that sorry for misinterpreting it. You stated that what adophins said was true and he included Hinckley into his comment about H-D/AMF.

It was Hatteras not Hinckley that was purchased by AMF.. If Hinckely had been purchased by AMF they would have had the stupid AMF logo like AMF Hatteras, AMF HD, AMF Paceship, AMF Roadmaster bikes, AMF Voit, AMF Head skis & tennis, AMF Alcort and others had...

Hinckley Yachts was never owned by AMF but Hatteras Yachts was.....

thank you Maine Sail, but to restate and clarify, Audolphins was saying that they were informed that AMF bought H-D in '83, so I was correcting that, as Harleys I know a little about, at least compared to sailing. Hope I can pick up some great information on this site~~james

Ah got it. I don't know much about HD's but I do know Hinckly was not part of AMF...

I own an OC42 and would generally agree that they are very fine boats but perhaps not QUITE a "true Hinckley," mainly in the level of finish. Solid as a rock, though. The blood-relationship is evident, though (e.g., the water and fuel tank vents are routed through two of the stanchion bases and into the stanchions themselves, which are drilled to provide the venting, a nice touch).

Re: Is this a real Hinckley?

Although OCY is no longer in business, Hank Hinckley is still around, and maintains a website that tells something about the OCs.

Here is the link: HANK HINCKLEY'S BOATS

BTW & FWIW, I have owned one fo the 42s for a year now and still get a little pitterpat when I look at her. She sails very well -- not superfast but neither is she terribly slow, and rock-steady in the biggest blow I have yet to have her out in (35+ knots).
