Launch of "new" Hans Christian HC41T - Pictures

I launched my new HC41T in June and thought some people here may be interested in seeing some pictures of a new Hans Christian. She was built in 2003, but launched for the first time 12 years later in 2015.

I added a user gallery on CF as well, but don't know whether it is yet visible to everybody. If not, I have also uploaded the pictures - click here

That's a seriously good looking vessel.

Congratulations on splashing her.

Very nice, but why never launched in 2003 or subsequent years?

I don't know why, but I am certain that the boat has never been used before.

This is how I found her late last year. Wrapped up in plastic foil.

Awesome boat! Sounds like there is an interesting story behind. How did you find her?

Beautiful. Acres of teak!! Love what appears to be epoxied on teak decks on top of FB so shouldn't ever leak.

What do you plan to use to maintain teak? I recommend Semco unless you are looking to go gloss or gray route.


Also really love the more modern underbody. Should be much faster than old ones with full wetted surface of extending aft.
