Really interesting, thank you, I didn't know about the gas heater. Where abouts did you hide the Propex and the Eberspacher.

Our H30 Aprilis has no heating. From past experience this makes a big difference in the spring and autumn. One previous boat had a catalytic gas heater but I don't see a possible installation in Aprilis and I really am not keen on gas. Aprilis is on a swinging mooring so this rules out the fan heater option. Aprilis has parallel settees and galley by the companionway. What have other people done for heating with this layout. Any thoughts advice or experiences would be appreciated. Thanks

What arrangements regarding gas lockers are the best for an H30 to conform to the latest best practice ie PD 5482-3:2005. I have seen a very neat camping gaz 907 installation in a Contessa 26 lazarett. This uses a space that is normally not used. See the photo attached. the gas cylinder is under the circular cover behind the fender rack.

Well, that was emotional. Expected to arrive at 0700, wind was a force 7 after 3 hours so we ended up 11 hours in fuck off heavy seas. Managed 75 Nautical miles in 14 hours only to find we missed the tidal gate by 1 hour so then had a four hour wait in a F7, heavy seas and now pissing rain. Awesome last sail on Nerina she will be missed. Bye girl, and thank you x.

H30 for sale, reduced in price, absolute bargain at £6500.

In 2015 she was rewired, had brand new sprayhood, brand new chart table, brand new Dodgers and an Eberspacher D5 fitted.

Shore power and a sink unit with pumped freshwater tap fitted. Also included is a hand held VHF, 2.5m tender, a four man life raft and a tiller pilot.

Spare Genoa 1+2. Spinnaker and pole also. She's moored in Bangor NI and mooring until March 2017 could be negotiated.

She was surveyed in June 2016 with only two minor recommendations which were rectified immediately.

Can deliver anywhere at a cost.

Hi fellow Hustler owners. Today is a very sad day for me as I am putting my much loved Hustler 30 up for sale. She is a great boat in excellent condition and has been fully refurbished by my dad and has a new beta 20 engine installed in 2014. The album shows her in action and gives the full boat spec and particulars for sale. Please do contact me for more details on 07879 645 495 or email sailor@anna.blackwood.plus.com she is on sale for £14,000, as she is fully in commission I would be happy to take out interested parties for a sail to see her in action.
