Hutton 24

Hi all i have just brought a Hutton 24 ts, she is about 25 years old and has sawing keel.
The boat has been modified and changed over the years.
What i would like is some specs on the boat, i am trying and fine out if the changes are working. From what i can tell the keel has been replaced with a lighter one,and water ballast has been added. The boat sails well but is heavy one one side. I can drain the water on one side to bring her back but not sure how much weight to put into the keel if any.

So what i would like is some one who has or has had one to get some ideas
from any help would be good thanks

Wally

Re: Hutton 24

Are you in Oz???

My first boat was a Hutton 24. They are based on a dufour 24 hull, and are good boats, but to your specific questions i'm not entirely sure in terms of specific ballast figures.

No problem.

Mine was a great boat, but water ballast etc seems like a modification that is quite a bit dffierent from what my boat was.

Best of luck!

Hello Wall,

I have also just got one of these in fairly original condition. The water ballast is definitely a modification as the ballast was initially provided by the weight in the swinging keel and lead ingots placed in the hull.

Specifications for this boat can be found at hutton24.keptsafe.com

Cheers mark

Hi Wally,

I'll try to get some pics of the ballast etc and I can either email them or post them here.

I had a look at the pics of Tara, nice! How did you mount your solar panel on the railing? I'm interested in doing something similar.

Cheers

Mark

Wally,

here are the pics. It was quite difficult to get these shots but hopefully you can make out the lead ingots placed along the inside of the hull on either side of the swing keel housing.

I'll have a look to see if I can see the pin this weekend. My boats only about ten minutes away so I may have some luck. I was going to PM you with my contact details as I'd love to chat about your boat but apparently I haven't submitted enough posts yet.

Mark
