I was wondering how many users on this site or members of the Endeavour association have E28's and where they are.

There's Bon Doobie in Sydney, Scotch Mist in Melbourne and i think Elf is a 28 ?

Are there any others. Noticed that the 28 that was for sale in Qld (Impulse)has been sold.

Hi David

I believe the one sold in Brisbane was the red one. Another one has come up in Brissy. Its yellow and its on www.yachthub.com for $32k. Looks OK. I don't know of any others on Westernport or Port Phillip but Sasha would probably know.

There were two E27-s and an E28 at Hobsons bay a while ago. I know at least one of the 27's went away.

I think there is an E28 at Blairgowrie, but I was not looking too hard as I was busy shivering a lot (dinghy ride back from unsuccesfully trying to find a winch handle. Floating winch handles are GOOD).

Have enquired about the Moonlight Lady which has been for sale for some time. Looks good in the photos outside but a little bit of work required on the inside.
Have photos if anyone is interested.

Second Fling is an E28 owned by David Walton at Sydney Amateurs. David is a regular at Endeavour Regattas. There is another on Lake Macquarie that looks a little different and has been suggested as the plug boat. Mahogany planked?

We could have another discussion on the yellow Endeavour on Yachthub, i think its a 27.
By the look of the layout and the motor is said to be under stair well.

Any opinions.

David.

A number of the 28's had there engines moved into the "traditional" position under the stairs for various reasons, I am told. The guys at Sandringham performed that very operation a couple of years ago and "know the routine". It apparently improves access (the fuel tank then went in under the V berth for weight stabilisation) and also meant that the floor could be lowered a few inches for more headroom.
I have to admit that my personal preference would be to do exactly that, mostly for the improved access (though I suspect the 30's have the best engine access with just having to lift off the table and having 360degrees of work space)

Hi all,
I believe the yacht on Yachthub is an E28. But I still stand by my assertion that the yacht at Gladstone is an E28! Could someone please go and have a look!

I don't know about the weight stabilisation, this boat has the nose up ready for take off and transom on the water.

Maybe carrying a lot of gear for cruising.

But by the look of the interior photos they allready have the vee berth packed aswell.

I can see the point about the extra headroom,
but would you go with the expense for the gain?

Hi all,
I give up. the yacht at Gladstone is an E30. But the transom is different to Walrus. Is it the difference between a Mark 1 and a Mark 2.

Don't know if you know of another E28 in Blairgorie but Mist origionally came from their 5 years ago and still sports their sail #3717.

As far as moving the motor from the V berth, I can imagine it would be a big operation. In the case of Mist... transfere the water and fuel from the 1/4 berths forward (and plumbing) and the motor aft (and exhaust , controls etc). As well moving the batteries which are also under the V berth (and associated electrics) For the sake of 2.5 " of head room.

The noise level in the cockpit is very low with the motor at the other end.

Has anybody done this and was the result better, worse, indifferent?

Yeah, I own an Endeavour 28 called "Stealaway" which is moored near the bridge at Toronto.
I've had it for almost 2 years now and its in fairly good condition. I'm setting it up for single-handed sailing. Hopefully might make it to Botany Bay on the October long weekend.

Hope to see you there, it would be good to have another E28, we can't let the 30's have it all there own way.

It was still attached on Saturday.

Glad to here you are going, i think that's 4 28's turning up.

I have to get antifouled before Oct, as i don't want to be the only dirty bum 28.

Have spent most of my time getting the feel of her, but she is as slow as sponge at the moment,but i am working on it.

David.

I just got my Oct copy of Cruising Helmsman and on page 27 there is a picture of a 28 called Solander and it has a forsale notice on it. It is under a topic called Getting it to Cruising The write up on the photo is good but I have not read the story yet.

I saw her on boatpoint, i think she is up in Pittwater from memory, they were asking 32K and i think it has been sold.

Maybe there is a way that the Endeavour club could promote through brokers, is all we would be asking is to notify the new owner that there is an association that promotes this vessel.

This may also help the broker in the sale of the boat as the buyer knows there is help and an active club to join.

Not many, in the teens I think - they were originally called (and marketed)the "Northener 28"

I only know this cause I sailed on the first one ever built, it belonged to Reg's brother Albert - I used to sail with his son - I think he had it for only a short time - don't recall the name or the time frame (either I'm gettin old - or - I should not have done all those things ya do when your young - and buggered up my grey matter!!!! :)
