Years ago, we bought Thumbelina, an Eastward Ho 24 ('74 with navy hull, a 30 hp Bukh diesel and tan bark sails) from a guy in Boston, sailed it for a season in the area, then parked it for the winter at Burr Bros Marine in Marion. In the spring, we flew up, provisioned her and headed out for Galveston, TX - long, but interesting voyage. Strong, little, go anywhere boat with the cabin space of a thiry footer. Years later, we sold her in Houston to a retired military guy, who moved aboard.

s/v Paloma, Bristol 29.9, #141
Slipped in Bahia Marina, easy access to Corpus Christi Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.

eastward ho

I have been sailing my eastward ho for 7 years and have about 5000 miles on her between the western Caribbean, the Chesapeake and the eastern Caribbean. She is a very good sea boat. I redesigned the deck and interier so all thats really left of the eastward ho is the hull but the first year I sailed her she was factory and you do get a lot of space for 24'

Re: Eastward HO 24

Greetings Eastward Ho sailors--some seven years later.....

Hey, Tom, are you still there?

We're pursuing an Eastward Ho in Portland. There can't be too many of them there. Do you still sail yours, nurseratchit, or am I looking at your boat a couple of owners later?

Cheers,

Lopezian
(as in Lopez Island: moving to Portland soon)

Re: Eastward HO 24

I like it when these old posts keep going. It makes a one-stop-Google-shop for a lot of info on some esoteric topics and boats without having to chase down a bunch of different threads.

So keep posting anything you can think of about EHo24s. I recently became aware of these boats and am very interested in what people have to say. Out of nowhere, EHos made it onto my short list.

Can anyone comment about build quality and hull thickness?

Thanks.

Re: Eastward HO 24

Lopezian,

Have you seen the Eastward Ho on ebay? I posted about it on the other thread.

24' Eastward Ho Sailboat in Sailboats | eBay Motors

How is your search in Oregon going?

I've also been looking at Danica 16s. A nice little boat I'm sure I would get a lot of use out of if I got ahold of one.

Re: Eastward HO 24

I have a '78 EH 24, and can't say enough about her. Solid, tough as nails, with lots of character. She's not fast, but she's strong. Kind of reminds me of a larger craft shrunk down to 24'. Full, long keel (with a tiller driven rudder) makes this little ship very stable. Some say it makes tight turns difficult/slow, but I've not found this to be the case, and by pumping the tiller sort of like a fish tail, I can get her to swing into dock pretty easily. It's a heavy boat for its size (7,000 pounds), but you will be thankful for the weight in heavier seas. At any rate, I've had terrific fun on mine, and have never felt unsafe outside the (Boston) harbor.

Re: Eastward HO 24

Hi Sea Lion,
How long have you owned your Eastward Ho, where did you purchase her, how much, and how far have you sailed outside the Boston harbor? Also, how much wind and what size seas?
