My own floating condo

Well we did it. As of 7:19 MST, I (we) are the proud owner of a 2003 Hunter 386. Thanks to all the advice I seemed to have found the most elusive of all creatures, an updated boat with newer everything and a very proud and conscientious previous owner.

All I need (want) to buy is a new anchor. Rocna or Mantus...opinions anyone?

There's a bunch of work to do for the next month or two all included in the price and then we board for up to 12 months (yes, I'm hedging my bets) for our adventure in the PNW. So now I need to know everything there is to know about wintering on the west coast!

Re: My own floating condo

Congratulation mate! Enjoy. As far as anchors, check out Noelex's thread on photos of anchors setting. Seems hes happy with his Mantus. My advice, whatever you get, get a big one!

Excellent, the Hunter 38 will be a great boat for exploring the West Coast in comfort.

Re: My own floating condo

Congratulations, wintering in the PNW; find a bomb proof cove, set out a couple of crab/shrimp pots, set the anchor, crank up the diesel stove, put on some tunes, start a pot of chowder, pull out the crib board, shuffle the cards and relax!

Re: My own floating condo

That is my idea of a good time. If the weather is right, go out and catch a couple of halibut. Next year at this time, that is where I will be, and there is a whole lot of coast line to explore between AK and Seattle. Might take the skiff ashore and go beach combing.
