Boat: 1984 Hunter 34
Posts: 5
Oh, what to do next...

I have a 1984 Hunter 34 docked in Coconut Grove,FL. Let me start this by saying I Love This Boat. HOWEVER, I live in New Hampshire and she MAY need the compression post done. I know there is a 2' x 2' soft spot on the cabin floor where the hot water heater dripped for too long under the salon table and I know she has not been bottom painted in 6 years. The only thing harder than finding the time to haul her and get the work done competently and fairly in Miami is trying to sell her in Miami. I just don't go to Florida that much anymore. I also know that I have the bottom cleaned and zincs replaced religiously and no blistering has been ever been reported - nor have I seen any myself when I am out diving. The engine is (typical Yanmar) in great shape as I pay Anchor Marine to service her regularly and North replaced my sails in 2013.
SO. I considered bringing her "up the ditch" to New Hampshire this coming spring but again, I have no time! Hiring a crew is too expensive for a boat I would consider selling for only $10K. or less. That's right boys and girls! $10K! The whole compression post thing tends to put people off even though Hunter has a kit available for about $1000.
So. Any body in New England with a similar sloop on the ocean that they want to TRADE for mine?? Mine MIGHT come with a liveaboard slip. Any questions? Ask away! I have owned this boat since 2011, sailed her Bimini and back myself, and I Love This Boat.
