I became the keeper of a list of HC 37 owners after the original creator lost his boat. I will private message (PM) you the list and hope that you wish to be added. (Interestingly the last one ever made ((in 1985)) just got added a few days ago and I am interested in trying to track down hull number 1 but that is another story)
Welcome! Great boat. Do me a favor? I'm currently refitting my 37c. I'm having some issues with my mast base. I don't think that it was original. Would you mind posting up a picture of yours in front of and behind the mast showing the base in the bilge?
Hi, thanks for the welcomes. I will gladly add my boat to the list. As to the mast base, I will be visiting and performing the final pre-purchase inspection this Friday, I will try and remember to take a picture or two.
Here is a picture of the mast step in the (soon to be) mine 1984. The black piece is an odd material, doesn't feel like aluminum, some kind of phenolic? It appears the solid epoxy has been chipped away to make room for it to sit atop the keel bolts. I have no idea if this is original or not.
