Re: Hello from Michigan

Welcome aboard CF, sasha.

I hope you'll tell us a little more about yourself. Having a boat that has questions is pretty unusual here!

Thank you! Older boat needs some work. Hoping to get it in the water in a couple months.

Re: Hello from Michigan

A back story might help. Got the 1987 boat from Norfolk, Virginia had it hauled to Au Gres. Inside needed a lot of work but it was a task that comes with getting a used boat. Questions weren't necessarily about the boat itself but rather about traveling in international waters when the time comes ��

Re: Hello from Michigan

1987 Hunter Legend. Needed some TLC. Previous owners had it docked for many years and it got neglected. We are in Au Gres, Michigan. Still need to work on some wiring for lights on the mast then will have the mast put up. Will be waiting a bit before it settles in water. Thank you for asking ☺

Re: Hello from Michigan

Thank you for asking Ann. I'm a teacher so my summers are a big deal. My partner bought the boat and he and I have been slowly working on it- wood stripped and refinished, steam cleaning the cushions, pretty much cleaning every inch. Feels good when projects get done, that much closer to getting it in the water.

Re: Hello from Michigan

Where do you plan to keep your boat? I'm located in South Haven and generally familiar with every port on Lake Michigan.
