Depends entirely on their buckets.

I didn't know that hunter made buckets. How do they make a center cockpit bucket?

When I was 13, I would have sold my own mother for one of those . . .

However, no one was buying my mother, so I had to wait five years, then I was allowed to sail one of these: 420 Sailing

It was a complete blast which hooked me on sailing forever.

Agree that the Hunter 43 -- 50 are definitely "old man's boats", and that Chicklet should try to get out on the water rather than fantasize in front of computer.
