Hi from Brisbane, Australia and My H28

Hello,

I'm completely new to the cruising scene, however did a bit of dingy sailing in Lasers and Pacers.

I took the plunge and now I'm the proud owner of a steel Herreshoff H28.

I'll have heaps of questions as I learn so a BIG thank you in anticipation of your help and answers.


SV Selene

Welcome

That will be a slight difference to a Laser!

She is at Royal Queensland, Manly. I've finally figured out how to load a photo too.

G'Day Camel,
Welcome and as others have said - lovely boat. Never knew it could be built in steel but a good idea. Had some pals who crsuied off from Freo in a wooden version - just as super looking above and below decks - but a tough one to maintain.
Enjoy the boat - and the site.
Cheers
JOHN

Aloha and welcome aboard!
I almost bought a H28 in wood in the early 80s. I should of done it. It was a real beauty and a good sailer.
Congratulations!
Kind regards,
