As a new user to the forum I just wanted to introduce myself. I recently purchased a 1998 Hylas
'46 and I am just incredibly in love with the boat!!
Her original name is Sweet Water
but I decided to change her to "Sweet Maureen" to honor both the original name and my deceased mother.
The boat is currently in Rhode Island
but will live on the Magothy River in Maryland
when I am not out cruising.
I've been searching for a Hylas
users' forum and would appreciate any pointers to such groups as well.
I have done a great deal of cruising mostly on a '48 Tayana that belonged to my friend but finally decided to take the plunge into blue water
and I can safely say that "BOAT" really does stand for "Break Out Another Thousand!"
I have been incredibly impressed with the quality and caliber of professionalism I have seen near New Port Rhode Island
. In particular I can personally recommend
* New England
* CONANICUT MARINE
AND most particularly Kyle Medina of Kyleboatworks - Kyle is an excellent all around boat person who can do everything to upgrade/install a new chart plotter to 12v battery
replacement to new HVAC plumbing
and pump installations. Kyle has really impressed me and I consider myself extremely fortunate to have found him at this critical point in boat retrofit/upgrade!
