Hardin 45

I hear complaints about how slow the Hardin is. In light winds, yeah, but when you get 20 kts of wind, she moves quite well. Returning from Belize, CA., to SW Florida, we had 22 kts aft the beam, and with the gulf stream at approx. 4 kts, we were making 10 - 12 Kts SOG. Also, on the trip down in April, we had to reef to keep the hull speed down. That was in about 25 kts. She rides real well. Got caught in 30 - 35 kts with 10 -12 ft. seas coming back from the Keys, and never felt threatened. QUESTION ?? Has anyone had to replace one of the large forward saloon windows?

Wink hardin ketch owners

I'm happy to hear there are other happy Hardin owners out there!! We have been living aboard our 45 ft. Hardin for over 2 years now, and love it! We live in the Pacific Northwest, and our hard dodger with full enclosure is wonderful, especially in winter. Makes a wonderful sun room, also! Planning on taking it to Hawaii in April. Husband wants to leave mid-March to get down to California and then leave April across the ocean! We've only been to the San Juan's so far, as well as just out into the ocean for some day sailing. Does anyone have any experience with ocean sailing on the Hardin? Would appreciate any advice, stories, etc.
