Re: Is this a real Hinckley?

If you want to know, write Hank. He's still producing boats in SW Harbor. Check out the cool 26' Daysailer..Hank Hinckley's Brokerage Boats

In talking to Hank, his passion is obvious. He is proud of his name and heritage and the work he's doing now brings all his experience and drive for excellence to bear. He isn't into it for the money, he wants to build the best boats in the world.

Re: Is this a real Hinckley?

One quick question, I seem to recall being told at a boat show that Tillotson-Pearson actually provided the hulls, decks and liners under contract for the OC's. Does anyone know whether I am remembering this correctly?

Also missing from the list of boats built at Hinckley is the wooden Hinckley 21, U.S. Navy Utility Launch 28, and Captains Gig 32, a couple or three Burgess designed post war Atlantic OD Class boats, Hinckley Alden Barnacle, and wooden S&S/Hinckley designed SW Jr. and SW Sr., wooden Malabar Jr (most were built at Graves), Shields OD class, the S&S designed Hinckley Competition 38 which had its fiberglass hull and most of their decks molded at Hughes in Canada.

Re: Is this a real Hinckley?

I don't know what you mean missing...but as for the hull question, I will find out (I'm in contact with Hank) of someone could e mail and ask if they want to find out before I answer. Either way, I would assume the standards were to Hank's exacting standards. People used to deride Sam Adams because it's now brewed around the country. Sam (Jim Koch) goes into a closed brewery and restarts with his brewmasters. Like a chef in a kitchen...doesn't matter where. Emeril will cook an amazing dinner in your home....

I used the term 'missing' since a couple posters had posted what I assumed was what they were suggesting as a complete list of boats built by Hinckley, and I was filling in a few of the gaps in their list that I could remember.

Also, by noting that I thought the OC hulls were built by TPI, I was not saying that there was an issue with build quality. Frankly, by and large, during the period in question, I generally considered TPI's build techniques to be more sophisticated than Hinckleys.

Re: Is this a real Hinckley?

Sorry...didn't mean to imply you did, just asserting Hank is making the "real" Hinkleys now...not concerned with "bean-counting"...straight from the man himself....

Cool Re: Is this a real Hinckley?

I have owned my OC42 now for about ten years, she is an '83. Hank's first 42. Here is my opinion. She is an extremely well-built boat and commands favorable comments from yards, surveyors, and passers-by alike. Her lines are definitely Hinckley, though a bit shorter in overhangs. She is one of only two center cockpits comparable to B-40s or SW-42s. Note you cannot get either B40s or SW42s in CC configurations.

The CC config allows a very generous aft stateroom with an athwatships queen birth, and twoheads plus stall shower aft and hose shower Iin forward head. Allfinish, fittings and construction rival HRH in quality -we have been told this by yards and surveyors repeatedly.

Downsides: Partial full keel, 5'11" draft with prop in aperture and rudder on skeg. Great for fending off lobster pots. Not so great for backing up. Tender except when you get her on her lines, then she goes like a champ. Good in light air as you can utilize the cutter rig. I would agree she is best used as a gunkholer. She can definitely take the ocean, large seas and high winds, better than you can physically, but there are better choices for bluewater.

I myself am happy with her. She appeals to me aesthetically and goes where I want in great comfort.

But to you HRH owners - I have a lot of respect for those boats.

BTW, go to hankhinckley.com and surf to the OC42s. That blue-hulled boat sailing in front of the Golden Gate bridge? That's us.
