Greetings to all. We are new to this forum, and I just read through the thread.
We have our Helia on order, with an expected completion date of around the middle of September. Hull number unknown. Owners/Maestro version, private use only. We expect to use the boat throughout most of the winter months in the Caribbean
, probably based out of Fajardo PR. We will either sail the boat back and forth from the East Coast
each year, or summer store in PR. Not sure yet. Depends in part on how passage
friendly she will be.
New to catamarans. Owned several monohulls. So I hope to obtain advice from others here as we go forward.
In the much shorter term, I would love to use this forum to get advice from other Helia owners as we make the option choices and decisions we have to make. So many decisions, and its been quite hard to get good information.
More on that later. For now, just this introduction
Thanks to those who clarified the mast/height bridge clearance question. I've been asking this same question myself, and I've gotten different answers from different dealers. If anyone ever pulls a tape measure up their halyard
, please post the result. I was really hoping it would be ICW compliant. Guess not.
