It was bought hull kit. Home finished.
The salesmanship, is the father who finished it built many boats..this one was built to circumnavigate

Mods from parkins marine, was a thicker layup.

Re: Sailboat weight???

So, how's the quality of work look? I look at the wood work, and see experience.

Not sure about the boomkin..
Also it has 4 stays a side.
He said the boat was built with 100% redundancy
For world travel.

What do all see? I have thick skin! Thanks

Re: Sailboat weight???

Looking at the waterline in the photo on the hard above and comparing it to the design, she doesn't appear to be overly heavy:

Re: Sailboat weight???

She had two furl. He said he removed it, (still has them included) said he prefers her with the hank on
Genoa

What's the story with that boomkin? Why would a long range sailer, want that?

I haven't seen one h28 with that type boomkin

Looks solid as all get out! he said all wood on boat solid teak or mahagoney, just not sure the why of the boomkin.
