"Hey Steve, We were also looking at this project with a friend and we learned that it did get sold. The new owner apparently cut the sterns off and was going to turn it into a powered pontoon boat of some sort!"

"Brilliant work Matey, stoked to see her at the beach! It's been a while since I've been on the site. Got two questions; 1) How long is the gin pole? 2) Is the winch line secured at the gin pole head or free running?"

Cead Mile Failte from Galway Bay !!

There are a couple of PAHI 31's on this site I guess a lot of these boats were built about 20yr ago probably many of them are now in need of some T.L.C.

The HINEMOA was a tough boat, today most builders would go for a TIKI I think.

Welcome and get some photos soon - a picture tells a thousand words etc....
