Just a quick post to say that I have managed to get hold of some fantastic information recently on the H25's. Thanks to Doug, we have PDF files of an original brochure on the H25; a magazine review on the H25 (1978) and also a listing of (most of) H25's built and their original names. This information makes fantastic reading and am sure you will all find most interesting. It will be great to have this information available on line to all and will certainly help to preserve the history of the H25 class.
Also, in regards to my own yacht - 'Irish Impact', Doug (the original owner), was able to supply me with a number of photos and other bits of fascinating information. For example, I have a photo of Irish Impact taken at the 1976 Melbourne Boat Show at the Exhibition Centre which was the debut in Australia for the Holland 25!!! I am currently in the process of compiling this into a document which I hope make accessible to all on this site.
I will speak with Colin about how we can get this information accessible to viewers of the H25 site. Thanks again Doug for supplying this information.

Here are the Holland Lines that I created from a set of Eygthene 24 lines that I put into CAD and massaged until they resembled the Holland and the few measurements I'd taken and profile photos of my H25.
These are only indicative and I cannot vouch for any accuracy, but they will give people who do not know the yacht an idea of the lines and profiles of the hull.
Hope you find these interesting. If anyone has accurate lines, I'd love to have a copy to either correct these or retrace into CAD.
