For more than 15 years Hardy Owners Club members have been contributing their questions, answers, tips and opinions to this message board.

So, if you're interested in Hardy Motor and Hardy Motor Sailer boats then you're bound to find something useful among our 860 current topics. Example discussions include cookers and painting (care and maintenance), fuel economy and getting a boat to plane (engines), trailers and towing (miscellaneous topics) and sailing round the British Isles (navigation and sea worthiness). Guests are welcome to read our message board but only current HOC members can add comments or start new topics.

If you're not familiar with our message board please try searching first as there's a very good chance that your subject of interest is already here. If it isn't then start a new topic and you'll often get a response quite quickly.
