RE: Hershine

I have a 1979 Hershine Trawler in Nanoose Bay, B.C.. In my travels up north and around the Gulf Islands, I have only seen one other. It seems that they are rare, not enough to have a rendezvous I guess.

RE: Hershine

I recently purchased a 1987 Newburyport 37 in Rhode Island and have brought it down to Chesapeake Bay. I have found very little history on the company which imported this boat from the Hershine yard, but apparently there were several (some say up to 30 boats) which were brought in and outfitted in Newburyport MA.

RE: Hershine

Hi DVD, thank for the info. I've never heard of the Newburyport before your reply. The hull looks the same but the aft area is quite different.
We'll see if there are any more replies, I would like to find out more about the Hershine family of boats.

RE: Hershine

There's a Hershine here in Thorne Bay (about 44') for sale very reasonable. Owner just does not use it. It's got a starter problem on one of the Volvo's and the roof leaks. Contact me via PM.

Hershine

Congratulations, Have you been looking for this particular model or were you open to others?. We looked for seven months, saw a lot of boats and a lot of junk before finding ours. Are you taking it to Portland yourself?, if so please post an account of the trip.

Thank you! I was loath to post again till I was sure, but my offer has been accepted, so I will own her on the 1st of November.
I was open to all kinds of boats, I looked at carvers, uniflite, grand banks, sailboats, etc.

I was given a piece of advice I thought was good. Find a boat that is being used for what you want to do already. Once I did that i started seeing boats that really interested me. Big difference in the setup of a weekender or summer boat vs. a live aboard! It didn't take long to fall in love with trawlers. After lots of boats I decided I wanted a single engine diesle. I then really began looking at taiwanese trawlers on the west coast (shipping from east coast was prohibitive!)

Did lots of homework and started looking at albin, hershine and a few others. When this one came up I called and then made the 4 hour drive the next day. It felt like I was "home" as soon as I went aboard. Brand new engine and electrical runs. The owner lives aboard with his dog Elliot (my dogs name is Ellie.. go figure)

I know he got equivelant offers to mine, and in fact mine had a delay built in (while closing on the house) but he sold it to me because I loved the boat and spent my time being excited about it, and what he had done. Others had brokers who spent their time pointing out every flaw and trying to weedle him down.

Sorry TMI but I am so happy to be getting this boat, and to be moving onto her!

I would love to drive, cruise, ??? her to portland, but I am so green, I don't even know how to start the engine or the heater! She is going to be shipped from Port Townsend to Portland where I am having a captain bring her to my Marina (while instructing me as much as possible) I have lined him up to teach me how not to crash my boat into the rocks, logs, islands etc over time during the winter so come spring/summer I will be ready to cruise.

PDX- nice looking boat! What is the finish on the teak decks, or is it just the rain in the photos that makes them look varnished?

Nice boat. The only clash with the overall state is that rusty old CQR. Get yourself a nice new Rocna, or Sarca if you can, and all will be complete.

Thank you for the kind words!

The CO (for 11 more days!!) uses cetol cut with around 50% thinner. brings out the color and last for months (depending on traffic according to him) I was on her in rain and no slippery at all.

Yeah, that anchor is sad huh? So Rocna's are good?

I looked at sizing chart, came up with a "25" does that sound right? 37' boat, 36,000 lbs...?

thanks for the recommendation and the kind words!
