Helms 24 Information?

Sailcharlottes reply is correct. Helms Yachts were built in Irmo SC not in Florida. The build quality of the hull is excellent and the quality of the overall boat is good for the time. I sail a...

The solomon motor was the one I was thinking about in my previous post. In theory, I sounds like a great idea for distance cruisers. Use the electric motor to get into an out of port, couple the...

MacGregor 26

The Mac26 may not recover beyond 50 degrees without the tanks being full. However, I do not consider this a design flaw as the boat is designed to do things a "regular" sailboat will not do. It...

Helms 27

The Helms 27 is a good boat for the money. There are a few on the lake where I keep my Helms 30 and they seem to be a cut above the hunters, catalinas, etc... of the same era. My 30 seems to be a...

Given that loose footed sails are more adjustable, can one fly a bolt-rope type footed sail out of the track like a loose-footed sail?
