Hello everyone

My husband Stu Stebbings and I are the proud new owners of Outlier, a Custom Pilot 35. We just sailed a bit in the San Juan Islands close to home. Great boat. We purchased her from Gary Mohr who really set her up nicely for sailing. Stay tuned for questions...!

Calypso!

My boat is on the hard at Port Townsend.  Saturday I was on board, finishing preparations to be put back in the water, when I heard someone call out.  

It turned out it was Rick and Helen, who own of the Chilean Pilot 35s!  Its original name was Calypso, and I cant remember its current name.  At any rate, they live in Port Angeles, but keep the boat in Port Hadlock.  Port Angeles is on the Strait of Juan de fuca;  she reported that at that location the weather was either "hooting", or…

Whimsey

Sadly, we are putting our lovely Whimsey up for sale. Considering a move out west
this year and if we go ahead, it doesn't make sense to keep her.
Anyone have a friend who might be in the market for this beautiful sloop?

A "Hinkley" thing

It hit me as I was getting our Pilot ready to launch this spring, just how people react to these old girls.

I was talking to a very nice man who was working on his sailboat a few boats down from mine. He was telling me the old story we've all heard about how his boat had very little bright work as he didn't want to be a slave to it. I find myself trying to not brag up our boat as it tends to "brag" itself up plenty on it's own. So I took the old "I know what you mean" approach. I was going… Continue

down in the bow

Last year I noticed for the first time that my boat is a bit down in the bow.  I was embarassed to realize that I did not know if this was a new condition.  I searched for old photos that would provide evidence, but being a poor picture taker I found nothing conclusive.The condition goes away when all the anchor chain is out (and if the fresh water tanks are empty). There is no obvious cause;  nothing heavy in the vberth, no leak or water in the bilge.Is this condition the norm? Have others…See More

"Don and Jane- I am so happy to hear from you. Yes, Caper is now mine, and I would very much like to know her history. Caper is still up on Lake Texoma (on the Texas/Oklahoma border, as the name so subtly implies). I am working on arrangements now to…"

"Welcome, David, to the Hinckley Pilot website. Did you per chance purchase CAPER (ex TECUMSEH #3558) from Mr. Miller?   We owned her from 1982 to 1997 and have a complete history of the boat if you are interested.  Mr. Miller converted her…"
