Hank Hinckley Day Sailor

I was intrigued by this sweet little day sailer/weekender from Hank Hinckley. There was no one around on the morning of setup day to answer my questions but it sure is a pretty boat.

Catalina's 275

Check out Catalina's new 275. It's one of those boats hard to categorize; day sailer, weekender, round the cans racer, all round family fun boat. And it's a looker too. SAIL Best Boat nomination
