"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."

I think the second picture shows why a 60+ year old boat in need of at least lots of paint and varnish still means a lot to me...

Re: Let's see your pride & joy(boat)!

Well, after Peter's pics of his magnificent Hinckley, there's hardly any point, but...

The beauty of my little tub lies largely in the fact she was paid for in cash, and I can singlehand her anywhere I choose to go, 'cause I could afford to lose her, and no insurance pogue has any say about where and when I choose to sail... (grin)

1970 Allied Chance 30-30, Hull #1...

I am sure you know that though.
I agree.

Peter, those of us with low freeboard, and plenty of sheer, have a built-in excuse... (grin)

Re: Let's see your pride & joy(boat)!


I photoshoped the name/homeport off the transom.









She started her life as a 1964 Sailmaster 22, Sparkman/Stephens design that was modified by the prior owner.
Stretched 2' by adding to the stern, new deck, house, converted to a cutter, added bowsprit and small yanmar. She's a centerboard, drawing 2'11".

Bill Tripp aligned the planets with this one, Hinckley brought her down to earth, I mean the sea.

Old Hinckley. Paid for. Cheaper than a new 32 foot ABC production boat. Your boat looks great Jon. When are you coming back to the Bay of Fundy ?
