    I'm afraid she has no name. I'm the second owner of a all original including the shag carpet(now gone). The hull needs a good buffing before a name is properly placed. Prayers poems and promises is top of the running though. We be in Ten Mile Tn. on Watts Bar lake. Only had her for two months and most of that time has been spent cleaning and fixing the little stuff. Sunday was the best wind yet. Heeled to 25% plus. I had more fun than my wife, she keep letting out the sails. 
     I hate the lack of head room but love the boat. There is a 27 for sale in Knoxville for $4500.00, very tempting. We are recovering the cushions this weekend then more sail less work...... 
    Ill send a few pictures with this. Thats my wife cleaning..

    Where are you proud Helms owners. This is a great boat that deserves some attention. I have a Helms 24 at Lake Norman Sail Club in Denver, NC. I have owned ARTWORK for only a few months and am having a ball both sailing and upgrading. Send me a note and let me know how you like your Helms.

      My 24 didn’t have a name when I bought her a couple months ago.  Spent this weekend (Hot, No wind) cleaning fixing and getting the vinyl graphics on.   Have had a lot of fun making her personal, with mostly Good Will purchases.  Curtains, bedding etc.  I have spent a few nights aboard, love the 6” headroom and comfy cabin.

      I have only had a few days of good sailing, summers on Lake Norman, NC are not breezy.   Sail club races in Spring and Fall.  Helms is pretty quick so I look forward to it.   Good luck with your project.Helms 2.jpg

        Art,

        We're in the same marina at LNSC! I bought an 82 Helms 27 in March 2011. It's a great boat! And everybody that sees it agrees. Should have the name on it in the next month or so. "Hangin On" is the intended name. Take a left on the outside dock and you'll find me in one of the inside slips.

        See you on the Lake!

        Kent

                  Looks like you are good to go if those u-bolt chain plates are firmly attached and properly bedded (so they don t let in water). I m not sure about the 24,

                    Looks like you are good to go if those "u-bolt" chain plates are firmly attached and properly bedded (so they don't let in water). I'm not sure about the 24, but I think you will find the upper plates (middle of the three shrouds) are attached to an interior bulkhead. Look to see that the attachement is good and that the bulkhead to hull joint had good attachment. The lowers, the outer two plates, will be backed on the inside. Look for deck integrity at and near the plates and fix if it looks or feels questionable.
                    Simply attach the shroud turnbucklles to the U-bolts.
                    The backstay plate attachment (two if you have a split backstay) are obvious. Just put the turnbuckle in the hole of the tang. Forestay turnbuckle goes, you guessed it, into the stem fitting.

                      You mean ther are no plates on the deck in the other positions? Yes, I m sure you need them to seal the deck. They ought to be available. It s a common

                        You mean ther are no plates on the deck in the other positions? Yes, I'm sure you need them to seal the deck. They ought to be available. It's a common arrangement. You'll have to do some detective work after you have the dimension to track down a similar part, or you can fabricate or have them fabricated from the one sample you have. CatalinaDirect.com sells a kit for the Cat27 that may be the same if you're lucky. Of course it has the u-bolts and hardware as well, but maybe . . . .

I'm not sure about the 24, but I think you will find the upper plates (middle of the three shrouds) are attached to an interior bulkhead. Look to see that the attachement is good and that the bulkhead to hull joint had good attachment. The lowers, the outer two plates, will be backed on the inside. Look for deck integrity at and near the plates and fix if it looks or feels questionable.

                        We have a Helms 24 located on Lake Murray. Have had for 7 years now and enjoyed it a lot. The 6 head room is very nice. I have added a bimini in the last

                          We have a  Helms 24 located on Lake Murray.  Have had for 7 years now and enjoyed it a lot.  The 6’ head room is very nice.  I have added a bimini in the last year, which has been very nice on sunny days. 

                           

                          Ours also has the Yanmar Diesel.  Does anyone else have a yanmar?   It has been very reliable, but still learning a lot about Diesels.

                          Where are you proud Helms owners. This is a great boat that deserves some attention. I have a Helms 24 at Lake Norman Sail Club in Denver, NC. I have owned ARTWORK for only a few months and am having a ball both sailing and upgrading. Send me a note and let me know how you like your Helms.

                            I have a Yanmar YSB-12 in my Helms 30.  Been using it since it was new in 1978.  No issues with minimal maintenance.  Added an external fuel filter and replaced the fuel tank after it developed leaks.  Other wise only occasional preventive injector cleaning and water pump impeller replacement.  It has proven to be reliable.  Always starts on first crank in the Spring.
