Which classic Hinckley model were you looking at ?

Just curious.

Ironically, when everything was just the way I liked it - and as most know, we sold her - due to my better half's discomfort level, sailing on that boat. Strange that for the first time in over 20 years of boat ownership - we have no boat improvement goals and cruising plans for the 2008 season.

On the other hand, we're engulfed in the thrills of searching for replacement boats - forgot how much fun it was. What made it more enjoyable today, was when inspecting a true classic sailboat at Hinckley Yachts - my wife couldn't take her eyes off her. She loved the lines of her hull and how low to the water the cockpit was - a sharp contrast to the near 6 ft freeboard of our last cockpit.

To see my wife grow to appreciate the pure joys of leisure sailing, the way it was meant to be, and find the perfect boat for us.

First full season with a new boat

Two goals for this season:
  1. To learn how to really use the new asymmetric well.
  2. To sail overnight and arrive safely and as planned.
Not too exciting, but reasonable while having fun....

petmac,
Not exactly sure which model it was, since the topsides were shrinkwrapped. We were not there to inspect boat interiors, just driving through the yard after doing some work on my old boat - which is on the hard at NEB, next yard north of Little Harbor.

It appeared to be a 35' - 36', maybe a late 60's Hinckley Pilot Yawl? Not even sure if it was for sale; she was a very pretty girl though and my wife agreed.

Let me guess - you're a broker for Hinckley or Little Harbor? (g)

sold the Nauticat

TrueBlue,
No I'm not a broker, but I do love the old Hinckley classics. I owned a Pilot 35 for ten years and now own a B40 sloop. Good luck with your boat search.

for me the goals are:
1.- learn to fly the chute
2.- keep racing the Flying Tern Class (just won 2nd place this past weekend)
3.- Have fun, and enjoy my family and the boats
4.- keep the boat good looking and well maintened, projects will come as imagination keeps working
5.- Do our first overnight on the water

Thumbs up

I have been working on it a couple years now but my goal is to have my boat completely rigged for single handed sailing this year (includes practice) because next year I hope to retire and sail a lot more.
I just got the Snapfurler on and will next tackle the lazy jacks and then should be good to go. Autohelm & lines aft were last year.
What a great way to spend money!

My goals may or may not be so lofty.
  1. Actually not take out any docks with the big 38 footer..
  2. Try not to take out any boats that get in the way of accomplishing item number 1.
  3. If successful with items 1 & 2 then I should be ok with striking out this item on the list - try not to ding or take out chunks on said new boat to me.
  4. Move all the Raymarine radar, c-80, and 1/2 dozen displays and ducers to new vessel, as well as the other nav equipment that I have.
  5. Participate in a race on my vessel and actually not place in the DNF category.
  6. Spend two weeks cruising up the Pugent Sound as the last two years never made it past Anacortes.
  7. Lastly - simply enjoy the sailing season.
