I agree. Maybe that's the target market Hunter had in mind when they built it. But first the soggy foam insulation needs to be removed.

We all know this is not representative of the vast majority of these types of boats construction or longevity.

Ken,
You should back off PIC,s like this as according to Smack some Hunter owners are showing signs of deep insecurity and evidence like this will only increase this. Could be dangerous!

Haha , those soggy foamy things but look at the bright side, if they dont want dig in the **** they can resort to the rudder hollow composite stock ...

Shoddy build quality with shortcuts being taken by Hunter during production along with poor keel and rudder post design.

Warning to Hunter owners.... check your keel boats and rudders for water intrusion. Very simple.

BTW - how much did you spend on your boat? Heh-heh.
Considerably less than most around here, would be my guess... Initial purchase price of a piddly $8K almost 20 years ago, to be precise...

Fortunately, I've tried to ignore what I've 'invested' in her - both in sweat equity and $ - since then... :-)

Yep. No bias. No debate.

Heh-heh.

Mike Harker sure did some awesome things with his Hunter(s). And the dude was tough as nails - no question about that:

Hunter Marine's Mike Harker Beaten Senseless in St. Martin!

I definitely admired the guy.

You know that and I know that but Smack and his followers do not know that otherwise why would they use it as an example? Well because to begin with they don't know any better because while you live in the world of daily experience they get all their info from Google.

Okay - now this is getting really weird. My "followers"? Who would they be exactly? You guys seem to have a very strange view of what sailing forums should be.

Look, if you guys want to talk facts about production boats and blue water, I'm all over it. That's what this thread is all about. If you want to keep taking personal shots, I'll have to disengage. Your call.

Oh, he knows it. Go back and look at the RH threads, he was right there when Eric explained in detail exactly what sort of boat he had and how it was built.

Are we still holding that there is no debate or bias surrounding this subject?
