HC Alternative

As an alternative to the HC 33 or 38 you should consider a Lord Nelson 35. some poeple consider them the "Cadillac" of the Hans Christians. I have hull 27 and it's built like a brick s---house! Also, the teak decks are screwed down but directly to fiberglass, not balsa core. The boats are well insulated and very dry.
Cheers,

The Luders has been great. She keeps momentum at 5-7 knots well. She's a little underpowered with a new Yanmar 27 hp diesel. That said, she's handled very steep six foot following seas with agility offshore of Long Island, and beat into a 30-35 knot wind with 4-6 ft waves from Salem to Ptown overnight without drama. She's earned my trust. She sails with a nice smooth motion. She's comfortable, fun and able. She looks a bit practical and gruff next to all the fancy yachts in the Cape but was the only lady shoving of for the Cape Cod canal current change at 11:30 at night. She's easy to handle, and I imagine I can singlehand her fairly easily. Her cockpit is comfortable and the decks wide which makes for nice lounging on the mooring. I'm very excited. I will figure out how to post photos and get some up.

Congrats, William. Looking forward to the pics. I'm surprised that the 27hp isn't enough power?? What does she weigh?
