Re: Hunter 42 for Offshore Work?

I'll add my two cents on Hunter's since I own a 40. The backstay is in the way. The seating in the cockpit is uncomfortable. the wheel is too far aft. the manual rudder might be problematic because of this. I guess I would have to remove the wheel. Maybe everyone has to when it comes to that. The main shrouds rub. need a shoehorn to get into the cabin. yes no lee cloths, but I'm working on that. Sailing her though is a dream. lively and spry. nice lines. turns on a dime. I going to take her to blue water in July.


I'm wet nurse to a last place dead to the neck up ball club and I'm choking to death.
