Welcome

Welcome to the Helms board. You have one of the earliest Helms 25 with a 1972 #11. They made some minor changes over the years like moving the cockpit drains to the stern and having a through hull for each instead of a T or Y connection. The changes have been discussed in different threads.
Send some pictures. We like to see what's different on the boats.
I'm glad to see that one more will be saved rather than cut up.

Good luck,

Wayne

You're boat is older than my Chimera, good luck w/ rebuild.
Let us know what you have identified as problem areas. What kind of sails did you get w/ boat? What kind of shape are they in. Be sure to store them well RIGHT NOW, mice like to chew them for their cozy winter home. I store mine in Igloo coolers since they're not much good holding ice.
Where do you intend to sail?

Helms 24

Hi Folks,
Just thought I'd say Hi. I just recenly (6 months ago) bought an 81 Helms 24. I don't know what the hull number is but I'll Look it up. I'm glad to find this forum because as you all know, there certainly isn't much out there about our boats. I look forward to learning as much as I can.

Welcome Trumpeter5. Congratulations on your Helms 24. I understand they are one of the spacious 24s around. Also sail very well for their vintage. There are several 24 owners around and they stop by this site once in awhile.
Sailnet use to have an email board that was popular. You can find the archives by going to the top of the page, click on resources, scroll down to email archives and click Helms. There is a lot of information there and we had many 24 owners on the board.

Re: Who has the newest Helms 25

Where is the hull number located? Our new baby has an aluminum tag inside the transom that had black painted lettering 'Jack A Helms Company', Then some unreadable text ending with Sailboat in almost a cursive font. Under that is 'COLUMBIA, SC and stamped into the aluminum itself in about 3/8" fine numbers is the number '25'. Thought that was the length since she is a 25'. Anyone know it it is length or hull number?

Re: Who has the newest Helms 25

Hello,

We have been trying to find someone who could tell us where the hull number is on the '72s that don't have hull ID on the outside starboard transom. We have a '72 Helms 25 with the hull ID only on the title, but there is a tag INSIDE the transom with the number '25' stamped into the right lower corner. The balance of the text on the tag is printed on with black paint and reads 'Jack A Helms Company - ONE-Design Sailboat - Columbia, S. C.' Is your hull number on the inside transom tag?
