Gunny Marc,
I've just joined sail net and by the look of the thread your post may be some time back?
I've undertaken to buy a HC38 subject to survey and sea trials...
I'd be interested to open up dialogue with your old man to see how he has found his experience with the boat...
For that matter anyone out there who has practical experiences with a HC38
Thanks,
Gunny (based in Perth Western Australia)

Gunny Gunny here in Perth Western Australia
I'm about to buy a HC38 which is in Brisbane Queensland.
I'll leave her there as the intention is to d the Queensland coast, then some parts of the Pacific. I'm just trying to convince my wife to sell one of her kidneys (joke folks!) to finance my cruising dreams
HC owners keep in touch (the HCOA members don't talk much)
Regards to all
Gunny

Afte quite a saga, I'm happy to report the boat reached Brisbane last weekend after a largely uneventful sail up the coast in a 20-25kt westerly by my dad, brother and a family friend.

My dad said it was very comfortable and sails beautifully - and coming from him (with a lifetime of East Coast Oz sailing, skippering a few Sydney-Hobarts and a Transpac to boot) that's praise indeed!

I'm looking forward to Christmas on a plastic boat - just for something different.

Better fix that dinghy.. if the Wombette gets her feet wet, I'm sure she'll let you know!
Oh mate you ought to see the thing. It has a hole in the bottom, under the stern seat that you can see through. I think I didn't rough up the surface sufficiently last repair cos the entire patch came off the other week. If you think she who must not be interupted dislikes wet feet you ought to see her with a damp arse.....

Hi A, thanks for asking.

After quite a saga, she's sitting safely in Coffs Harbour waiting for my Dad and my brother to take her the rest of the way - they're just waiting for the life raft to turn up (at the delivery skipper's cost). It was waiting to be picked up from the overhaul shop when the guy left Melbourne heading north. Apparently they had an uneventful trip up and didn't break or lose anything, so I guess that's the main thing.

I don't imagine I'll see it now until I get to Brissy for Christmas.. At least buying Dad a Christmas present won't be too difficult - he's got a ton of varnishing to do!
