Re: Spindrift 46
Sadly, my wife and I are ending our adventure aboard our Hillier/Peterson 46 for health reasons. She lays Shoreline Marina Long Beach and will be offered for sale to anyone interested in a really fine cruiser. She is hull #6, in great shape with wood decks and no leaky. Will sell with many extras and spares. Contact: 503 803-6695. Have greatly enjoyed this communities postings over the years; have learned a lot, thanks!

|Cal cruiser||Does anyone have any information as to the history of the "Blue Moon" presently for sale in Stockton Ca? Did she go by another name? Possibly Noblewind? Is she a true 46 or a 45? Has anyone compared her to a KP46? Is the asking price is $144,000 is that reasonable? Just dreaming.|

your information has been extremely helpful, and you have a fantastic yacht.

We have new engine, and tanks. The chainplates are not glasses in but behind a board in the dinette region. Not easy to get at, but doable.
We can get some weather helm, but I have a main/ genoa set up which minimises weather helm, unless I have reduced genoa and its a broad reach. The deck under the staysail plate is reinforced, but I so rarely use it, I leave it off.

|daviddupzyk||Very impressive boat with a really nice interior. It is a very good knock-off, but some caution might be prudent with this and other earlier taiwanese yards. I looked at one to purchase and my first big question right off the bat was why the side stays entered the boat through the center of the toe rail. could not find the chainplates anywhere inside the boat and wondered if they were glassed inside the hull? Never got to the survey, but chainplates on an older boat are very important items. like peterson 44's, take a close look at - tank quality, engine make, headsail chainplate, tack support for the staysail, weather helm and all the stuff that is hidden. best bet is to ask as many owners as you can find about the boat. i know of one in oxnard and another in san carlos. they both have good things to say about this boat. enjoy.|

The wife and I own hull #6/13 and live aboard in Portland OR. We like just about everything about her save how wet the center cockpit is in a strong seaway. She was built 1984 and her original teak decks still don't leak.

Had a center cockpit Hilliers 28' that I sailed in England about 100 years ago - wrecked it off Bournmouth in a force 7. My stupidity alone not the boats construction. Now I see the boat you own in for sale in the C -what do you think of them? What to watch for?????

|St Anna||So far so good. I have a few things on the list to work on. Is yours still in the family? What's her name?|

Sounds like you are enjoying the boat.
