Hi Jesse,

Rory here, looks like you have picked up the Hinemoa called Owl in NZ?? Did you buy here from Hans Bader?? Habs was a good friend of mine when I was living in NZ back in the 90's. Had a fun sail from Auckland to Whangaparoa after Hans had completed the wider beams, deck tent etc.

Anyway, hope you have fun.

Yeh I did have fun, my dad actually sailed her up from Auckland, however I never met the previous owner, I have had to sell her, because I have taken a job in Hamilton, the new owner lives in Ruakaka and hopefully him and his wife and kids will get great use out of her,  her wider beam really does make her very stable, I sailed her in some heavy winds and could not life a hull, however  I need something a little bigger for what i plan on.
