Stede, seriously, what are "peeps", my kid was supposed to bring some peeps to a party, and I`m hoping it means popcorn.

“Peeps” are small marshmallow candies.

In the context Stede uses, "peeps" are "people"

Well, here we go - my first post. i saw that this thread started several years back. Stede, what kind of boat did you decide to get?

I stumbled on a Hunter 37C last November and did some research. The Cherubini Hunters, IMO, are definitely a breed apart from the Hunters that followed. I purchased the boat for a very reasonable price, but there is plenty left to do (and I think another 10k to 20k would be required to get it ready for long-term cruising).

I can tell you that this is a very strong stable boat. It takes about 7 kts of wind to get her going (like someone flipped a switch), and at 10 kts, we are grinning from ear to ear. At 20kts, we start to contemplate reefing, but still very stiff.

The layout is very nice with lots of teak. The ports are most definitely junk. We will be replacing all over time. The holidng tank is the only other consistent problem I have heard about. I was concerned that the 27hp Yanmar would be underpowered, but it has turned out to be a real workhorse. The boat stops on a dime, and turns very tightly.

The cockpit is smaller than I would like, but I think its size would make it safer in blue water. Also, the mainsheet and traveler are in the cockpit, which I believe is stronger support for the boom than a cabin top arrangement.

The cahin locker is large, but shallow. I am a bit concerned on whether 200' of chain will be too top heavy. I may try to lead it to a lower space in front of the v-berth.

Many of the 37C owners on the Hunter site are in love with their boats, and tend to own them for many year. The ports and holding tanks seem to be the headaches.

Having owned a Cherebuni 30 Hunter. I have to agree these boats are head and shoulders above their siblings. I'm still lusting after a 54, and would not think twice about the Carib in a 27 or larger after a good refit.
