Re: How about a Hardin 45 Thread

Hi All , need some advise please , our Hardin 45 has a main sheet traveller winch branded Cathay Industrial SS 10 , we're looking at adding another winch to the port side.
Does anyone know of a supplier for these winches , failing that could someone suggest an alternative winch make and model?

Re: How about a Hardin 45 Thread

LokiYawl James,
I think my rigging is 1/4" 1x19 wire except for the main which is 3/8" for the outer shrouds and fore and split aft stays. I don't know if it's 304 or not but I do have Swagelok fittings down low and crimped eyes up above. I'd like to have a hard dodger too but that will have to wait until later. I can get by with what I have until I go north again. We are currently in San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico on the dry but our home port is in Alaska. We have sailed the coast from the eastern Aleutians to the gold coast of Mexico so far. While we were in San Diego I built some lexan storm covers for our big windows but I may change the design as they are too cumbersome to put on and store, of course I can store them in place but they are not as pretty as the original design which is two layers of 1/4" glass with plastic in between. In Mexico we usually have the big windows covered because otherwise it gets too hot.

Priorities lie with the ones that leak. As far as your chain plates go I think they are some sort of sideway E with a bar connecting them across above the port lights under the shrouds. So far I have been lucky to not find any cracks either.

Can you or anyone reading this tell me how to find out which hull number 1979 Hardin 44 Voyager I own?
Hello again, where do you keep your boat? Great idea to add a boom crutch, I have considered that as well but I might be adding a hardtop so maybe a flip up style on the top, not sure yet.
Can you tell me what diameter standing rigging is on your boat? My boat was originally all 1/4" - 1x19 304 wire.

Best, James

Re: How about a Hardin 45 Thread

Hello All, I own a 1981 Hardin Ketch which I am preparing for some long distance sailing. My boat was built without the teak decks and was pretty well cared for over the years but is in need up updating and maintenance. I am removing every pc. of deck hardware, removing any core in each hole, filling/sealing with epoxy and then rebedding/adding backing plates. I am replacing all of the original teak fairing blocks located under each stanchion with filled epoxy which is bonded to the prepared deck and painted to protect from UV after shaping. I had two minor leaks along the rail which I traced to two hawsepipes. I have removed the hawsepipes, created a fiberglass tube shaped the same as the bronze and bonded and glassed these to the inside of the bulwark and the hull creating a solid pass thru so that regardless of the caulking they will never leak again. I will do the rest of the hawsepipes as well even though they don't leak. The rigging wire seems to be a bit light compared to some other boats but doesn't actually look too far off when I do the calculations provided by Skeenes. I would be very interested in hearing what size wire is being used on other hardin 45's out there, especially the mainmast caps and lowers. I will be renewing all of the standing rigging and it would be great to know if anything should be changed/upgraded beforehand! I have been inspecting the chainplates below the cap rail after removing the cover plates/ caulking and also through the bolt holes, so far they look excellent, 0 cracks found so far. I am thinking of adding a fixed intermediate attached at the level of the inner forestay to prevent the spar from bending that would also add some additional redundancy to the rig. BTW I read one story of a Hardin 45 "Almesian" that was rolled completely over in a really bad storm off of the Carolina's years back, she came back up with both spars still in intact but unfortunately lost one of her big forward windows, quite a story. Part 2 of the story appears to still be available online. Sailnet won't let me post the link, but if you search on Gulf Stream Rescue + Hardin 45 it should come up.
Thanks for any input on the standing rigging. James

Re: How about a Hardin 45 Thread

I have been lucky to own a 1979 Hardin Voyager 44 for the last 12 or so years. Many adventures behind us along the Pacific Coast of North American and many more to yet experience who knows where. Currently I am not on or at the boat but if any of you are and can measure your plastic port lights for me that would be great. I did this when on the Scotch Mist but seem to have misplaced my drawings and measurements.

Re: How about a Hardin 45 Thread

Where are you doing the re-build? I hope to be back in Ft Lauderdale in late October and would like to see your progress and maybe get some ideas.
