Hunter 33

For any Hunter 33 boat owners out there or people who have run into a Hunter 33, any suggestion for the following would be appreciated:

What kind and where do you put a dingy on this 33?
Where do you stow a stern anchor?
Any suggestions for the best way to stern anchor this boat?
What kind and best placement for solar panels?
Opinions on the best brand and model of barometers?

I realize this is a lot for one thread, but maybe I will get lucky.

Thanks.

If you are going to build an arch for solar panels, you could make it strong enough to support davits - we did this on our H34. Otherwise, the only place you can store a hard or inflated dinghy on an H33 is forward of the mast over the hatch:

Welcome to the Board!

Davits are a good choice and can handle a nice dinghy with a good amount of hp. Good quality davit manufacturers can install a stabilizing bar that creates a mounting location for your solar panels.

Here's a good picture of a system that allows for an adjustment to maximum reach in order to get the dinghy out over the transom. It also shows the stabilizing bar where the solar panels could be mounted. The unique transom presents some challenges to mounting, so this system has been designed with a universal base, adjustable height and angle ability, and a universal rail mount fitting.
