A "Hinckley" 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…

Bagheera was fist over the line and third in the Clas in light winds 0 to 10, not ideal. Watching big classic Blackwatch, Noreaster, and Ticonderoga at the start was incredible

Newsworthy!

Louis Meyer, aboard his Pilot, Strummer, crossed the starting line from Newport, R.I., and is very much in the Bermuda 1-2 Race now. He is sailing solo to Bermuda. After he rests up a bit, he has two others hopping aboard and sailing Bermuda to the Azores on his Pilot!

Question re: Hatch leaks

Hello folks,My forward hatch has a small crack that leaks. I know I can sand it down, repair the crack and seal the original hatch. However, while looking at other older Hinckleys it looks like people cover the hatch with a white plastic material. Is this common? Any suggestions either way (repair vs cover) would be helpful.Thanks,MattJubileeSee More
