Re: Eastward HO 24

Lopezian,

Have you seen the Eastward Ho on ebay? I posted about it on the other thread.

24' Eastward Ho Sailboat in Sailboats | eBay Motors

How is your search in Oregon going?

I've also been looking at Danica 16s. A nice little boat I'm sure I would get a lot of use out of if I got ahold of one.

Re: Eastward HO 24

I like it when these old posts keep going. It makes a one-stop-Google-shop for a lot of info on some esoteric topics and boats without having to chase down a bunch of different threads.

So keep posting anything you can think of about EHo24s. I recently became aware of these boats and am very interested in what people have to say. Out of nowhere, EHos made it onto my short list.

Can anyone comment about build quality and hull thickness?

Thanks.

Re: Eastward HO 24

Greetings Eastward Ho sailors--some seven years later.....

Hey, Tom, are you still there?

We're pursuing an Eastward Ho in Portland. There can't be too many of them there. Do you still sail yours, nurseratchit, or am I looking at your boat a couple of owners later?

Cheers,

Lopezian
(as in Lopez Island: moving to Portland soon)

eastward ho

I have been sailing my eastward ho for 7 years and have about 5000 miles on her between the western Caribbean, the Chesapeake and the eastern Caribbean. She is a very good sea boat. I redesigned the deck and interier so all thats really left of the eastward ho is the hull but the first year I sailed her she was factory and you do get a lot of space for 24'

johnshasteen Years ago, we bought Thumbelina, an Eastward Ho 24 ('74 with navy hull, a 30 hp Bukh diesel and tan bark sails) from a guy in Boston, sailed it for a season in the area, then parked it for the winter at Burr Bros Marine in Marion. In the spring, we flew up, provisioned her and headed out for Galveston, TX - long, but interesting voyage. Strong, little, go anywhere boat with the cabin space of a thiry footer. Years later, we sold her in Houston to a retired military guy, who moved aboard.

There was a question about chainplates, which do look small, but here are a few factors in their favor. This is a very wide boat compared to, say, a bluewater boat like a Cape Dory. Wider means less tension when heeled (or rolled). Both have shrouds clear out to the rails, and both are fastened right to the deck. So itís down to deck and backing plate strength. I made larger backing plates, bedded in with thick epoxy, rather than fastening to the hull.

Some modifications over the years: Twin mid-boom mainsheets, bowsprit, propane heater and cooker, regular head, 35 gal. holding tank, 4 batteries, big alternator, 12v refrigerator, large fore and aft ports in the doghouse for inside steering using a remote tillerpilot controller, stereo, video, microwave, experimental lightning gear, inverter. The list goes on. One project this winter is to make a set of doors for the companionway.

The bowsprit project was successful in a few ways Iíd like to mention. It made room for a larger, modern-furling 150% genoa, which in turn added speed and removed nearly all of the weather helm. With the tack further forward, the reduced angle of attack into the wind improved pointing. The bowsprit also looks like it belongs on a classic boat like this.

Lately Iím experimenting with barber hauls for the jibs, rigged inside the shrouds for beating.

I'd show a picture, but the "insert image" icon up there seems to be looking for a web page, which I don't have. I could e-mail an attachment to anyone interested.

Hi, I wanted to make this a PM, but I am too new to the sysstem for that to be allowed.
Hello,
I realize that this is an old thread, but I am considering the purchase of an Eastward Ho and I would like some more information about them. Can you help me?
Any advice, cautions, or pictures would be most appreciated. If you are having trouble posting pictures you can e-mail me at "tjr818@lycos.com".
Thanks, Tim

I have heard that they are slow, although I'm not in a hurry. I just want to be able to sail upstream sometimes.
Thanks, Tim
I have an Eastward Ho 31'. I purchased it last year and absolutely love it. I've heard some refer to the Eastward Ho's (24' and 31') as motorsailors, but I don't think this is a good description. It's just a good, solid, full keel sailboat. With my 120% genny I can get up to hull speed in 9-10kt winds with no problem. These boats were built by Clark Ryder (better known for the Southern Cross and Sea Sprite) through contract with the Portsmouth Yacht Company. The 31's have nearly the same specs as the Cape Dory and Pacific Seacraft 31's, but for a lot less money. The 24's are very similar to the 31's, except smaller, of course.

johnshasteen Years ago, we owned Thumbelina, an Eastward Ho 24, we sailed her all over in all kinds of weather. We were sailing from Union Wharf on Boston Harbor down to Marion - as we were heading out of the Cape Cod Canal, the CG station was flying Gale flags - but we headed out into Buzzard Bay anyway. We took a pounding, but Thumbelina did just fine. Great little boat.
