Hello, I''m looking for information on the Eldridge McInnis designed 24'' Eastward HO built by Portsmouth Yachts. I may have some of that confused. Information regarding construction and reputation would be very helpful. Thanks. Eric

I vacationed in the mid 60s as a kid on an Eastward Ho in Long Island. Childhood memories are great, but I''m certain the boat was slow (very very slow) However, six of us spent 2 weeks at at a time on a boat that was meant for 4 to be a crowd. I haven''t seen one in many years. Somewhere I remember seeing them newer and in fiberglass and also I believe they made a larger (31?) boat. Good Luck

I have had the misfortune of having the mast for my Eastward Ho 24 destroyed by an excavator driving over it while it was laid up for the winter. Needless to say my sailing year is shot unless I can quickly source a new mast.

Does anyone out there know of the original manufacturer of the mast, or a company with the specs to have a new one made up?

There are a lot of used masts on the market. You need to take precise measurements of the destroyed mast to get something similar. It will need some work to make it fit, but it is much cheaper than ordering a new mast.
