Hinckley Sport Boat 40c

Hinckley Sport Boat 40c

December 11, 2018

It's a new Hinckley!  Not just a new Hinckley... but a whole new Hinckley brand.  Introducing:  Hinckley Sport Boat.  The traditional luxury boat builder is branching out and bringing their unparalleled build quality and attention to detail into a new line of composite build hulls and center consoles.  

Combining luxury with speed, I had the pleasure of photographing the new Hinckley Sport Boat 40c.  With three independently articulating 300hp outboard engines, this baby reaches top speeds of 58mph.  I speak from experience when I say full throttle felt like somewhere between a rocket ship and a hover croft as we blasted along for the fastest and smoothest ride I had ever experienced!

The hull is a highly durable infused epoxy, with 3-way gyro stabilizers to make your experience beyond comfortable at speed and at rest.  And the Hinckley touch is not lost on the fully varnished teak interior with the coolest full length folding bench to berth I'd ever seen. 

We took the Sport Boat CC for a spin around the bay on one of the hottest days of August, as temperatures reached the low 90s with 91% humidity.  It was good we started as early in the morning as we did because I was about ready to jump in the water by noon time!  

Santa... I know what I want for Christmas :)

If you talk to anyway wave hunting lately, most everyone is pretty annoyed with this season's swell.  We usually expect big nor'easter storms to roll thru in the winter months, generating big waves and heavy offshore winds.  Last season we were totally spoiled with head to overhead 6-8'+ days regularly occurring once a week.  This season has been a little different, but perhaps that's a good thing to get me more accustomed to swimming in cold conditions.

I haven't been in the water for sunset in a while.  But the opportunity finally presented itself a couple weeks ago.  The sky was clear for once, there was a bump of swell in the water but apparently no one really deemed it worthwhile because the lineup was empty.  Fellow photographer friend Gus Potter grabbed his board instead of a camera, and the two of us hopped in with only half an hour or so before sunset to catch a few with the one other soul already in the water.  

It was a little windy and wonky, and certainly cold, but it was one of my favorite sessions this month.  You just can't beat that dusky light!

Shorebreak and Blood
Shorebreak and Blood

Shorebreak is a specific phenomenon.  When the change in bottom contours is so significant, and the wave action is high enough, these specific beach waves get jacked up and come crashing down right on the shoreline in a big way.  There is obviously the danger -- if the swell is heavy enough -- of getting caught in the impact zone just like any another wave, and having a massive force of water come crashing down on your head.  But perhaps the bigger shorebreak danger is getting sucked over the falls.  These waves are characterized by breaking on the shore, which means next to no water upon impact if you get sucked up and over and the wave slams you into the beach.  Now take all of that, and go swimming with a 7lb water housing.
