Just been over to see my Hardin - Kuan Yin in Rockport TX getting her ready for the Gulf crossing this Christmas, had a few days sail in Aransas Bay got 7.5Kts sog on a reach with 10 - 15 kts wind without pushing her.
Anyone got a marina/port they would recommend on east coast Florida, where i could lay up for a few months?
As with dealing with glass Get a triple laminate 3 x 3.5mm to be safe although you shouldnt walk on it

My dock neighbors Mike & Susan lived aboard their Hardin (45 I think) for several years preparing her for a voyage from SoCal to Turkey where they plan to liveaboard (her family's there). The boat was absolutely done to DEATH, we were all sure that there's a nuclear reactor in there somewhere. I mean backup systems to backup systems and he did it all himself. A truly gorgeous boat. Anyway, they left several weeks ago heading south, I think they plan to turn right somewhere past Mexico. They're planning on setting up a website & blog of their journey. When they get it set up, I'll link it here so you Hardin folks can follow their adventure and find out how the boat's performing.

Hi Wookie, not sure where you are now, but I hadn't checked in on SailNet for some time and just discovered the Hardin thread.
We have a Hardin 45, 4 cabin version, currently berthed in Savannah, GA. We were going to cross the pond last year but have now shelved those plans. The Marina we are in is part of a good working boatyard and Savannah is a good jumping off point for Bermuda/Azores etc. We are currently around $650/month inclusive, there are toilets and shower and laundry facilities, shops nearby including an Ace hardware store and supermarkets, and lots of friendly people around. Worst thing are the sand gnats, which are fearsome given the right condition. Pretty safe hurricane history too.

Cheers

Hardin 44

Hi George,
I am flying over to Corpus Christi on thursday to sail Kuan Yin over to Freeport BH then she is being shipped to UK I have not got the time to sail over the pond. Hope the oil doesnot mess with our plans, we should be south of the slick as long as the winds stay as they are.

regards Paul

Kuan Yin

He knows not where hes going
For the ocean will decide
Its not the destination
Its the glory of the ride

Hi Paul, strangely enough, I shall be in the Bahamas for a week next Saturday. Can I ask how much you were quoted for shipping? When I approached Dockwise, it was a rediculous sum fro Ft. Lauderdale to Spain, around 18,000gbp iirc.

cheers
George

George Wre you advertising for crew on crewseekers last year I saw an ad for a crossing to spain on a Hardin.
