Hello All,

I own a Hardin 45 S/V Shawnee. Look forward to meeting some of you out on travels.

Also for other Hardin owners, I've compiled a list of known Hardin 45's by hull, name, status and owner. If anyone has information or updates for this list please email me.

Hello Hardin Lovers! I own 1978 Hardin 44 - Hull #31. Her name is Symphonie V. We are on Kent Island in the Chesapeake Bay. No, these are not slow boats and are very tough. I love everything about her. I can't wait to take her to Key West. I feel very fortunate to have been a part of the Hardin experience. Everyone at the marina loves this boat. Sorry, not for sale!

Greetings....
 
I am refitting (rebuilding) my beloved hardin.. looking for a few answers. Anyone know about how the embedded chainplates are secured to the hull? Are the main shroud uppers (chainplates) somehow attached laterally above the opening port? I have never dealt with embedded chainplates before. Can anyone make me rest easy???? Mahalo...... Al.

Hi Al,
There was a guy in Galveston who did a complete restoration of his Hardin and showed pictures of all works, unfortunatly I have lost the website, you maybe able to google it. I beleive the chainplates were a pig of a job as he had to dig them out. Another option would be to have new ones fabricated to suit, surface mount them close to the old ones in stainless steel on the outside of the hull making a nice feature. leave the old ones in situ

Chainplates...ouch, that wasn't the Hardin 45's best engineering. I own Alice B., hull#99, also not for sale/or charter. From what I've read, if the chainplates are showing wear/fatigue, the best option is to put new ones on the outside of the hull, lop and fill the old ones. If you're lucky, you can use the old ones as part of your backing plates by through drilling, or not. The way I understand it removal and direct replacement would be a formidable undertaking because they are T shaped. Anyway, external chainplates would enhance the classic style in my opinion. Good Luck
