Hinckley Pilot 35

Sailing Yachts

Hi, can you help me.

I'm looking for some accessories, mainsail and genoa for my Pilot.


I have some doubts, because different versions of PILOT appear on web sites, these are:

HINCKLEY 35 PILOT
HINCKLEY 35 PILOT SM
HINCKLEY 35 PILOT Tall rig

HINCKLEY 35 PILOT TM
HINCKLEY 35 PILOT YAWL

They are related to the length of the mast and boom.

Someone has information that the meaning of these versions and so I will be easier to identify my pilot.

Thank you

The fiberglass Hinckley Pilot 35's were either built as sloop or yawl rigs. The mainmast and the main boom on the yawl are, I believe, alittle shorter than those on the sloop. The sloop sail area is 554 sq ft, and the yawl is 553 sq ft, as originally designed. I belive the wooden pilots built before the fiberglass Hinckley's have somewhat smaller rigs, as they are smaller boats.
These are all old boats now, and several have had their rigs replaced, and not all have been done as originally designed. My own Pilot now has a carbon mast and the mainsail is 1 foot longer on the luff.

Your best bet is to take the measurements off your own rig and use that to have any new sails made.
