You are far too observant!

Re: Heavenly twins

Thanks for all that info dmmbruce. I have been in touch with rob blood as well. Lots a food for thought. Still really love the HT.

Good! You are welcome Heidi.

If you want more info, please send me a Private Message over on the 'other forum'. I don't think it can be done here. Or at least I have not found out how yet.

Having said that, I have just seen it here too.

Mike

Re: Heavenly twins

Hi

We have a HT27 and also had a Mk. 1 years ago.
All the comments Mike made apply to the 27 as well
but I think the newer 27 does sail a bit better. It has
a rigid foredeck which helps with the forestay tension
and the genoa sheets are better located. It does however have
more windage due to the higher hulls and cabin.

We also have an outboard which reduces the weight
and can be raised, therefore helping with the sailing.
We fitted a bow thruster to help with manovering.

The 27 of course has the stoop through to the aft cabins
which makes life with a family that bit easier.

You will find that the centre cockpit is also a very safe
place for kids. The overall feeling you get from these
small boats is that they are safe and seaworthy.
In the right conditions you will outsail bigger monohulls
and with a lot less wear and tear on the crew!


Good luck with your hunting!

Re: Heavenly twins

Nice boats with outstanding interior space for their size, They also have a great well protected central cockpit.

The downside of this is that living outside the boat in a hot climate is very cramped due to lack of useable upperdeck, and access from a dinghy is also difficult unless you use a ladder amidships.

Outboard powered versions that have engine problems have very poor access.

Re: Heavenly twins

There's one in our marina which a fella has owned and lived aboard for many years. The only challenge he speaks about is getting enough tension on his forestay. He's had some issues with the hardware anchors on his hulls when tightening his forestay bridle.
