    Hello Soul Balladeer we are Black Molly HC44 number 16!! Welcome to the team!!

    • Hi Black Molly! It took a while to get here but very happy to be part of the HC family.I have seen Black Molly on different sites and she is beautiful. We are looking forward to having many years aboard Soul Balladeer. Keep in touch! Cheers, Shannon

    Thank you for your interesting website. I am the owner of Island Rose, another HC44PH off the line in the early days. I have been curious for some time if your boat was hull #1 or mine was, as there are many things about Island Rose that are different from the subsequent HC44PHs. For example, it does not have the walk around bunk in the back stateroom. What is the registration numaber of your vessel?
    Like you, I am putting my boat through an extensive refitt including a new engine and generator.

    • Hello Kenneth,

      Thanks for stopping by. Sorry I haven’t responded sooner but Denise and I have been in Thailand and i made a promise to myself to leave the cellphone and laptop at home. It was nice to kick back for 10 days.

      I believe that Soul Balladeer is Hull #1. The gentleman I bought her from was the original owner and received the vessel in 1980. Soul Balladeer is also on the brochure when they were marketing the boat in the early days.
      i dont have the registration number off hand but I’ll check it out and get back to you.

      My email is mcmullens92@gmail.com if you would like to keep in touch over different upgrades that you are planning. I have learned a few things about where to source rare HC items and would be happy to share.

      Fair Winds

    Hi There,

    Where on the boat did you locate the LPG external storage locker? Is it custom built? Thanks

  4. Its a great system. The best out there IMHO. The movement of air ensures the heat is uniform throughout the cabin.
