Re: Hunter 54 Refit and a Month to Do It In

There is a Hunter 54 in our marina, and the owners have a website, Hunter54.com for Owners and Information seekers of the Hunter 54 Sailboat I have never seen the owners in the time it has been here, at least 2 years +. It seems like they just stopped working on her. Lots of good photos on that site of what they found/dealt with.



Wow - I just looked at the photos... How much did they pay you to take the boat off of their hands?

Chris

Re: Hunter 54 Refit and a Month to Do It In

Feeling a tad masochistic that morning were we? One month to restore that? OMG. I look forward to seeing the progress reports on this one, assuming you have any time to post them.

Good luck, Charlie!

Re: Hunter 54 Refit and a Month to Do It In

why would anybody pay money to have something like that fixed up?

Because they're good, solid fast boats. Many have won ocean races.

Re: Hunter 54 Refit and a Month to Do It In

I suspect that she will be great with a new cutom interior. Or are you putting it back the way it was? Has she got a name?

Re: Hunter 54 Refit and a Month to Do It In

It'll go back pretty much the same. I keep forgetting to look at the name. Too much going on...

Re: Hunter 54 Refit and a Month to Do It In

I had one of these. fast boats, but hard to keep going straight while motoring.
The steering tore loose in the Gulf Stream. the plywood to which the steering is attached to is unreinforced plywood and it rotted out. You might want to look at it.

Re: Hunter 54 Refit and a Month to Do It In

That is no small task. You must have a very skilled and dedicated crew, the kind that is a pleasure to watch and work with. looking forward to more pix. Jesse

Re: Hunter 54 Refit and a Month to Do It In

A little update on work since Thursday. Chris and Zach have pulled up the old sole bits and taken down one head bulkhead that was rotted away at the base.




and




After some more pump out and clean up, we start laying the new sole tomorrow.

Re: Hunter 54 Refit and a Month to Do It In
