Halten (RS 71) was built in 1966. George and Sue wrote on 17 July 2003 to say Halten was docked at the Manitowoc Marina on Lake Michigan, Wisconsin, USA. Jack Culley, marina manager, told us Halten arrived in the spring of 2002 and the boat is a year-round customer converted to recreational use. 

Her owners then emailed us to say the vessel had travelled to Manitowoc Marina via the East coast, around Nova Scotia and through the St Lawrence Seaway and all of the Great Lakes except Lake Superior. Confirmation, and a photo right, in August 2007 that she is still in the same location from Bob Leberak.

Do you have any further information about Halten or any photos? Please email us and we’ll add them to this page giving you a credit.


The first signs of habitation on Hirta (the largest island in the St Kilda archipelago and the only one you can really land on) are thought to have occurred c. 600 AD.
