Hinemoa Launch

Well last weekend was very exciting for me, finally went from being a build project to a boat in the water. It was a 3 year project which some might think is kind of slow, but I work away from home and could only build at the weekend, and also build as funds allowed.I built her with increased freeboard but omitted the bulworks and she ended up at 24 feet long, the space in the hulls is huge compared to a standard Hinemoa, the bed is moved up from the first stringer to the second one and is huge…See More

spirit rig

As I progress with the build of my Hinemoa, I'm starting to think about what rig to put on her. I am quite taken with the 'Spirit rig' option in the plans, is anyone still using this rig on a Hinemoa, or is the wingsail so much better ? or I have a mast and boom lying in the garden that I could use for the 'Cutter rig' option. sooo many choices :)See More
