I own hull 64; s/v Mooney Hahn (odd name comes from a family joke as an homage to my father). The builders plate suggests it is from 1970 though prior owner paperwork says 1968. It is moored in Salem, MA. I spent two years refitting everything except above the waterline cosmetics.

Do a Facebook search, there is an interest group with maybe ten or so owners and lots of info.

Re: Hinterhoeller HR-28 1964

Mine was donated by the prior owner and sold at an auto auction for $200; to a junkyard planning to scrap it for the lead in the keel. I was unable to buy at that auction but did inspect it and knew it to be sound. I convinced the owner of the junkyard to sell it to me for $1,000 for a quick profit before he even moved it.

It has a 15 HP Mariner 2-stroke outboard in a purpose-built well... Ole Smokey is not very pleasant but we use it only to get in/out of the mooring field; we daysail so have never had to rely on it for protracted travel (but my local shop said they'd take it as a trade in a heartbeat, so maybe it is not so bad).

I spent the better part of 3 years refitting before sailing it.
- chiseled out a gooey, oozey plastic headliner and painted the interior
- lemon-oiled all interior wood (maybe 8 times)
- all new wiring, fuses, simple instruments, refurbed all lighting fixtures
- all new plumbing and fixtures
- soda-blasted bottom; faired and 6 coats epoxy barrier coat
- remove / rebed all deck hardware
- New handrails, hatch rails, refurb all other exterior wood (Cetol)
- Replace plexiglass in four large window frames and rebed
- Replaced all standing rigging (DIY w/ Norseman hardware; easy)
- New mainsail and 110% working jib

Not including my labor (~ 500 hours in my journal) I have just under $10K invested, which is probably about what it is worth (if that). I had great fun working on it and had never done it before... if I were to tackle the same job again, I could do it in half the time.

I am no expert, but I'm told by sailor-guests it sails very well for its size... that is the trade-off a narrow beam offers... good performance but limited room below.

My wife is lobbying for roller furling, but I am resisting. The boat came with 3 serviceable headsails (160, 130, 80) and my new 110 allows us handle any conditions (without drama if we change early).

The boat provides us a lot of enjoyment.

Had no idea there were so many HR owners on this forum.

Look up a video on Vimeo titled "twenty eight feet" I've watched it about 20 times.
