  1. I have owned a Farr 30 and a Henderson 30 and my favorite boat of all time is the Farr 30. It is a great boat. Outboard is peace of mind and a lot easier on your back moving an outboard from transom to down below. It was always a challenge doing it will heeled over. Runners are a pain on the Hendo. It gives a crew member another job, but one of the most important. The Farr is much easier to drive then the hendo. The rudder shape is much better. You could easily man handle the rudder to get the boat to go where you wanted it too. The hendo no way and I had a M32 rudder on it. The Farr 30 you
  2. Why so many Hendos for sale??? 4 or 5 in the classifieds.... what’s going on???
  3. This is a better deal... https://sailinganarchy.com/advert/1998-sydney-36/
  4. Tell the broker to remove the listing... https://www.yachtworld.com/boats/2008/columbia-30-sport-sailor-3252238/
  5. Peacefrog- I bought SOCA from them. I need to quickly switch to 155% for light stuff. I sold the boat years ago and it is in Montana.
  6. Hawk, Paul Amon built a few boats like this. The problem is rig would need to get taller like what Melges did with 32 for conversion from 30.
  7. I don't believe any modifications were needed, but ask Bill F.
  8. Can also use the propane outboard.... works well with limit ventilation the motor well has... mine was on the transom....

    Waterline isn't cheap, but you do get a little ROI or makes it easier to sell the boat with one vs not having one.
  10. Like I mentioned before I will start talking with my crew and see what they are willing to do... maybe we will do both, however very doubtfull. We do have a class legal main however it has seen many a better day. It would need some rework as it's our "heavy weather main" haha and ends up getting reefed and flogged alot... infact about a month ago we were doing a regatta where we didn't see below 20kts of wind an entire day! Needless to say we are now an A2 short haha! Hendo30chick would you guys be willing to drag your boat down? If that is the case and Eerie you drag your boat down that wou
  11. The boat shines in the light stuff. With overlapping headsail and large SA to displacement. The medium air can be challenging, but once you reach planning wind speed you can do quite well, Like any sportboat medium air displacement mode is its weak spot.
  12. We never used them on our boat. We used the Ullman tuning guide numbers from Doug Fisher. We had rod rigging so we had to tweak the numbers a little.
  13. Send me a personal message and will answer all of your questions!
  14. The boat was never raced. Doesn't have a trailer, just a shipping cradle. The boat doesn't look like it was used much at all, but certainly could use some refitting... I hope it generates some interest :-)What refitting do you think it could use? I am interested in this boat.All of the hardware looks original.... 19+ years old.... not sure of the bottom or what type of paint.... interior looks like a screen was added to make the port-a-poddy more private. Rudder bearings look original... deck looks original just like the rest of the boat... Boat is $10k-$20k overpriced especially without a

  16. I would recommend getting one designed for the boat, vs getting one designed for another boat and making it work. The Henderson is a different beast on it's own...
  17. Sailmaker shouldn't need them from you.... foot should be 155% the j measurement of 11.04 ft

    Is it just me, but isn't this demo boat doing a lot of racing vs demo sailing around the bay for potential owners? I could be wrong.... I'm not saying racing the boat isn't a great way to get a buyer, just not something I thought was common.
  19. I believe two boats were built with swept back spreaders and non overlapping jibs. You have to move the chainplates outboard. I think the boats were converted back to standard setup. I know years ago owners had thought about getting Farr 30 spreaders and moving chainplates as a package, but it never happened. The boat would be underpowered in light air in my opinion without a taller mast like Melges 32.
