KODOKU - 1985 HC Telstar 38

Postby Kodoku » Thu Sep 10, 2020 4:39 pm

Hi everyone,

I am a new owner of a 1985 Hans Christian 38 Telstar named Kodoku hull#99.

I will be completely refurbishing the interior and exterior back to bright condition with as many original parts as I can locate, buy, trade or manufacture.
I will be removing the teak decks to nonskid, replacing all sails, major interior refurbishment and redesign, relocating radar, and many solar/electrical upgrades and replacements.
Lastly a new engine.

Some items that have gone missing and I would love to know how to find, buy, trade, or plans on manufacturing are:
1. Belaying Pins on Mast Pulpits
2. Staysail Boom + Attachments Hardware
3. Specific looking Exterior Bolts

I will be continually updating this thread over the next year and would love to connect with other HC owners on the West Coast US. I am currently in Portland, OR.

Thank you for any information and or ideas.
