Re: Who has the newest Helms 25

Our Helms 25 currently being restored slowly has a title ending in '72' and the little metal tag inside the port rear wall of the cockpit has a barely legible '25' stamped into the metal. She has some rusty steel punchings in her keel area that have leaked out through the outside hull, but we have dried the area thoroughly and think we can effect a repair. Have replaced the main bulkhead with aluminum plate and are beginning work on the soft deck on the bow. She will be a comfy gunkholer when we get it all done.

Re: Who has the newest Helms 25

We are as well, but it is a 1972. Our bottom job was not done, we are working on it slowly. Our quandary now is whether ours is a Dolphin 25 or a Helms 25. Sailboat Data says there is a significant difference in the amount of ballast between the two. It also says the Dolphin was first built in 1968 and the Helms 25 was first built in 1974. So we need to know whether ours is Dolphin or Helms. It has the Jack A. Helms metal tag inside the port rear cockpit wall. Hoping Sailboat Data made an error in their stated ballast weight. If anyone knows how we can differentiate the two, would greatly appreciate the info.
