I don't know how it happened, I can't even remember how I got there, but just a few days back I found myself on the Hinkley web site, for the first time. I'm a convert. The classic designs, the luxurious fit out, the whole thing oozes quality, charm and even practicality! Add to that the unexpectedly high tech build and propolsion...... Then I found San Juan, and havn't been able to settle on one or the other since. After reading all I can find online about these two companies (which is not much) I'm begining to think that it may come down to personal choice (kevlar, carbon fibre, balsa core, SKRIMP / kevlar, foam core, infused epoxy vinylester resin. Jet drive / props in tunnels. Old school institution / new kid on the block). Any other picnic boat fans have any idea if one company is better than the other? Any other info/stories about these companies welcome. For those of you who arn't (yet) converts..... The Hinckley website. By clicking on "Hinckley Yachts" then "Power Boats" there are two videos to be found, one by clicking on the picture of the joystick, the other by clicking on "Beneath the Skin" then "View Video" http://www.hinckleyyachts.com/home_large.html The San Yuan Yachts site.... http://www.sanjuanyachts.com Can't wait to see what their new 58 looks like!
