View Full Version : H-28 Displacement

Looking into having a trailer custom built for my H-28. I have no idea of the displacement. She is 28'LOA, with an 8'9" beam, full keel, @1" cedar strip planked over oak frames. Any approximations of displacement?

Jack, don't know if this will help, but there are two H-28's near me. One displaces 12,000 and the other 14,000 lb.

Gary, Thanks. I was estimating @10,000 lbs so that is a bit higher than I thought. What is your source for the displacements of the H-28's? Were they actually weighed on a trailer. etc?

The designed displacement is a bit over 9,000 lbs- where does your boat float relative to her lines? A couple thousand pounds for the extra equipment we all add over the years and soakage seems reasonable, say 11-12,000?

I work for a crane and rigging company. That's actual weight on the crane scale after load block, slings and terminal gear are deducted. One boat nine inches longer, both made of different planking.
