Our Girl, Oblivion

1980 Hans Christian Cutter rigged traditional 38′ sailboat

Hans Christian first started building sailboats in the early 70’s.  All early boats were built in Tawian at one of several yards.  She’s a full-keel traditional sailboat and weighs 26,500 lbs. empty.  She holds 100 gallons of fuel and 110 gallons of water.  With full tanks and all our gear, she weighs in excess of 31,000 lbs.

Prior to our stewardship of her, she lived in San Francisco, Salt Lake, and traveled all over the world.  We know that she’s sailed from Taiwan and also been through the Panama Canal at least 3 times.  She used to winter in Maine every year.  Her vessel ID is 1022321.  If you have any info on her, pleasse send us an email!

We have one head, two double berths, a pilot’s berth, and a slide out settee berth.  We can sleep 6 people comfortably.  We have an ICOM SSB, VHF, Raymarine Radar and Chartplotter, EPIRB, SPOT Finder, handheld GPS, and lots of other little goodies aboard.  We have a small, 4 person dinghy with a Honda 2hp outboard motor.  And of course, we have a 4′ Santa Clause that we light up from time to time.

Oblivion is equipped with a Monitor Wind Steer systend we have a Raymarine ST1000 Tiller Pilot for use in calm conditions.

Oblivion has a 1980 Isuzu C240 Diesel engine with about 60HP.  I don’t have any idea how many original hours are on it.  We had a top-end rebuild on her a year ago in San Francisco.
