The OB is fine. A4 possibly more powerful, albeit heavier. But I would not change from one to the other. Way too involved.

Re: Hinterhoeller HR28 - 1967

Looks like I may be one of the most recent HH28 owners. As you can see from my other posts, my 1966 has been in storage for about 5 years so in need of some refitting. Main problem was the frozen rudder which we are getting on top of. I am curious to see from the discussion here so many powered by OBs. I have an atomic 4 that from all appearances still runs well. I will know a lot more following the launch but for now am curious if my having an A4 was special order? By the way, as I shook hands to purchase the boat, I made the mistake of saying in front of the PO that if the A4 craps out I would cut a hole in the bottom, build a well and drop in an OB. The PO actually shuddered at that thought and I actually feared he might cancel the sale. Seeing how much the guy loved the boat only gave me more confidence to make the buy.

By the way once launched and thoroughly sailed, I may have interest and time to develop a website. I agree that it would be a great idea.

Glad to know that Daniel Cooper is still around! If/When we do get another HR28 website running, we will want a lot of his information. He has collected a ton of information!

hriehl1 I'll third a vote for an HR 28 website... I just acquired Hull 64 with a fair amount of refit work needed.

pvanv1 Ratty,

I think that many of the HR28's were semi-custom. I know that ours was a special order, because the original purchaser wanted a stand-up head compartment. We have done a few simple mods -- installed shore power, upgraded the DC system, constructed gas lockers in the lazarette, added a CDI furler, Dutchman, and Tides Marine Strong track, and have dorade boxes going on soon.

Would be happy to contribute a few pix to your site once it's running.

Where do you usually sail?
