Just wanted to say hi. I'm not an owner, but in the early 80's I
worked at Hinterhoeller in the cabinet shop. Chances are if you have
one from 1980-1982 it's got my handiwork in it.
Its good to see so many enjoying George's fine creations. If any of
you have any questions about the ships or the shop where they were
made, I'll do my best to answer them.
While I no longer build sailboats, I am one of the few stained glass
artists is North America who makes 3d glass ships with fully billowed
sails. The R.H.Y.C. recently used my work for the trophies for the
Lilac Regatta last weekend.
Working at Hinterhoeller Yachts was an incredible experience and
lessons learned there have carried through to much of my other work.
Thanks for a great group.
