Love the HC's...I aspire to own a 33t someday when we cruise more long term. In any case, the 38 is a proven design with a strong following. If I'm not mistaken, HC is still producing boats but I don't think the 38 is one of them.

Their website states they make the 41 and 48 still, but did just finish a custom ordered 33t, so you might be able to request it if the yard is slow. Apparently they have some of the molds for others. Too bad you can't get the 44 Motor Sailer anymore.

Just a small update on this purchase for anyone interested:

The weather down here has been a bit ordinary lately so the boat is currently parked at Blairgowrie, waiting for the delivery skipper to get back from a Hamilton Race Week delivery. Basically, it hasn't left Melbourne yet.

My Dad is a bit annoyed, not knowing when he's likely to see it and, although I think they've decided to rename her "Senility", my Mum has started calling the boat "Myth"...

Congrats to your parents Hartley... At least they were smart enough to get a real boat and not a floating termite mound.

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.

Ha....he could have a couple of blithering amateurs, aka you and me, do the shop for him and he'd be no worse off...... Indeed we'd have probably made it Eden by now.

No doubt.. Yep, indeedy! Never mind..

One makes one's decisions and has to live with them. Methinks part of the truth is that, if anything went wrong with you and me or the boat (even with a pro I know in Mornington aboard) he would never have lived it down.

What does "do the shop for him" mean ? I have no idea and I typed it.

I assumed you meant "trip".. ...but one of my guys handed in his resignation of Friday (no particular reason given - other than he has a friend who works for Honeywell) and I picked up a cold last week in Manildra (NSW is such a wonderfully warm place!).. so I'm feeling a bit foggy right now, Fuzzy old friend.
