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.

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.
