December 7, 2011. We have received some historical information about this boat, and hope to get more. Back in the mid 1990's it belonged to Rudy Hinshaw who kept her in Deltaville, Virginia. She did not have a name when he bought her, and he did not name her. When he got her she had the original gas inboard (probably the original Palmer 27) and he replaced it with a Yanmar diesel. The hull had been regelcoated white by a previous owner - prior to that it was a turquoise blue.
