I appreciate the work you've done on this site and I will post info
and pictures about my 1980 27' Helms asap. I am located at Lake
Lanier, GA at 'Sunrise Cove' and purchased the boat in (May 04) with
the idea to 'at least', start a partial refit. I love the design
of the 27' (wish it had an anchor locker though) but this
particular 'Helms' has not had the best of care.
I first wanted to put the marine head back into shape. A
requirement 'before' I get my wife and kids up here. The former
owners had installed a flexible 'bladder type' holding tank that had
fallen apart over the years. However, its 'memory lingers', if
you know what I mean. I hired a local expert to help me with the
repairs but he doesn't really think that my Helms is worth the
effort. I need the help because my right hand can't be relied upon.
I was wounded in Vietnam in 1968 and can't fully grip a hand tool.
However I can darn sure pull on a sheet. Looking forward to
participating here and hope to learn a bunch from other Helms
