I built an H-28 and launched it in 1989. Purchased a fiberglass hull and deck with original lines from Krueger Marine out of Ft. Lauderdale, Fl. Took me eight years to complete. Aluminum spars, 20 hp Yanmar diesel, in line. All Honduras mahogany exterior woodwork, and Honduras mahogany and Oregon white ash down below. I even forged my own external keel. When she goes out she turns a lot of heads.

I have a Bermuda 30 built in 1964 by Far East Boats, LTD - mahoghony on ipol with iroko dead wood and spine, cross planked and riveted. Made one trip to Florida and decided the space in the cockpit was more important than the jigger. I've owned her for 25 years.

Mejack - I grew up St. Pete and get down a couple of times a year. Would love to intro myself and see your boat sometime if you are open to it. I will probably be in the market for a boat in 6 years (kids out of college then) and the H28 is on my radar screen.

I purchased a Parkins Marine H28 in 2004, and sail her on Lake Lanier in north Georgia. The records show the builder to be a "Jeff O.....". I'd be interested in knowing if it is the same person in this forum? I believe the boat's original name, and her current name, is WHISPER.

Re: Herreshoff H-28

Just an update on H-28's. They were designed in 1942 by L. Francis Herreshoff,
and originally built in wood. They are featured in Herreshoff's book, 'Sensible Cruising Designs.' They were designed as ketches, with one headsail.
Later design modification by Herreshoff to satisfy a customer's request presented the boat as a sloop.
They were modified, and built in the Far East, with a higher aft part of the house to make headroom below.
The Australians and/or New Zealanders further modified the plan (my guess without Herreshoff's blessing) to be slightly longer, deeper, etc. and built them of fiberglass.
The large H-28 association in Australia does not represent the boat as she was originally designed, though, I'm sure it is close.
Herreshoff originally intended them as week-enders, so the owners could return to work on Monday morning. That said, one or two have circumnavigated.
