This thread about the RH interview hasn't actually contained anything about the RH interview for many many pages now. I guess it has run its course and has now become a pseudo Facebook status update thread.

You're probably right Third Day. But doesn't that always seem to be the case, no matter what the original topic??

I read in Charlotte's blog that they joined DAN prior to their voyage in case they needed an evacuation. I guess an evacuation is on everybody's mind at some point.

It's like the BS about dragging your dirty clothes or dishes behind the boat to clean them.....it's Chat room BS....there.....it's been said....
I was curious how our heavy HC33 would handle "surfing" conditions with our super wide keel. She just picked up and tracked right down. Doing about 13 knots over ground in this picture in 12 feet of water, and also a view from the cockpit. Pretty scary the first time. Months later we did it all day long on a day with ideal conditions on our passage to the Galapagos for a 171 mile noon 2 noon.

I'm hoping the RH story doesn't give the Hans Christian line a bad rap, they built incredible boats. I know several other HC owners and none of us had ever heard of an HC being built with all wood decks... but the 36 does have something of a sordid history and RH was a very early boat. Ours has solid fiberglass decks and I'm happy to report that's it's only teaky, and not leaky.
