Hi All!
I´m not really a new member, but I wasn´t here for so long that I forgot my username and password. So, I had to register again under a new profile. Sorry for that! :mrgreen:
A lot of refit and reconstruction is supposed to be done these years with my 1987´ built Christine S. Hope to get good information here for all the work to come. Maybe I will be able to give some info back as reward to you.

Hi Antti and everybody,
first of all, thank you for this forum, a very valuable source of information! We are pretty new to sailing in general, but fell in love with a HR 29 this fall which is now our first boat ever. We are Manuela and Martin with 2 girls located in Berlin. The 'Visby' is no. 165 of the 29s (1984) and has been stationed in Berlin for at least the last 25 years with more or less regular trips to the baltic. We are looking forward to do the same in the next years, are grateful for the help provided by all of you in this forum and will share our future experience with the Visby.
Cheers
Manuela and Martin

Hello!

We bought and Hallberg rassy 29 1,5 years ago, she is called ADA. We bought here on the east coast in Swede, but now we have here on the west coast. We have done a lot renovating. They have changed teakdeck once (unfortunately screwed) but the shipyard changed all wood under the teak deck to aluminium because it has been a leak before than changed the teak deck which is much better according to the shipyard. She had a new engine Volvo Penta D1 20 ang a new propeller so its easy to manage in a narrow harbour. We have bought new sails, single reef boom,
bathing platform with new ladder and a point with ladder to. New cushions and carpet and mattresses with shaped sheets. Solar and anchor and new instruments and led lamps everywhere. Also lazybag and new sprayhood and tent and so on. The boat is perfekt for 2 persons and tolerate a lot of lake and wind. After we launched her this spring we will take som pictures. We have been inspired of Dolphin Dance.

Regards,
Eva and Martin

Ada are in Bohus Malmön near Smögen.

Olá,
my spanish is as week as other members, so thank you Antti to translate the introduction to english.
Gratulations for your decision to buy a 29er.... for me the boat of dreams.
I also sailed several boats while I am chartering in the adritaic.
For me the cheapest way of sailing was to charter a Jeanneau 54DS and have a Crew of 6 -8 members.
Now my little family decides to have a long term cruise next year and for us the 29er is the perfect choice for us.
I will go on with family cruises with the 54 but the base for us will be our new HR29.
Im looking foreward to read news from you and I will post pic´s ourself as soon we start our journey.
Greetings,
Sascha
