Lady Hamilton is a 1970(?) Hughes 29 Hull # 052 built by HUGHES BOAT WORKS LIMITED which was located at Huron Park, Ontario.  According to Howard Hughes over 200 Hughes 29's were built with a few being built and sold as kit/owner completed boats. These boats where made from 1968 with the last ones being built in 1973 by United States Steel Corporation after Howard and Peter left the company.

Original sail shown is a 176% Genoa. From the photo you can see that I am unable to trim it properly and I am using blocks well aft of the Genoa track.  In 2009 I purchased a new 155% from Shoreline Sails in Toronto (Rolly Tasker Sails) which made such a huge difference with less heeling, weather helm and speed which increased now that the sail could be trimmed efficiently.
