HC38 Hans Christian 38 sv Noorderzon

Hey all, I would like to introduce my self and my lovely new girl "Noorderzon" (kept previous owners name)

I just purchased her 6 months ago. Very pleased with he build quality.
Things to look out for. Wiring, teak decks. Pay the money and get a full Survey.
My teak decks were replaced a few years earlier, and has 30 year old teak on the cockpit and cabin top. Still holding up. The new decks will last another 30 years if well maintained. I let mine silver naturally. Still looks good to me with near no maintenance besides a light scrub with salt water.

I uploaded a few pictures here. Hope to add more and write some words soon.
The Adventures of Noorderzon


enjoy

Re: HC38 Hans Christian 38 sv Noorderzon

Previous owner was Dutch of course.

Well I am an Aussie and i think renaming a boat seesm to take away some of its soul. So I choose to keep it.

Perhaps someone could translate it's meaning. I believe it is something like "gone with the northern Sun"? A saying for when a person disappears for a while they say he has gone Noorderzon?

In Australian we call it "Gone Walkabout". Hes gone walkabout, meaning hes off on an adventure.

I think it's literally "Northern Sun"...

I don't recall this being an expression or part thereof similar to walkabout, just a reference to the North Star or a loose synonym. HC is great! best of luck!
