Hi there! We recently bought a new (to us) 1986 Hunter
Legend 37 that we plan to sail from Lake Superior
, leaving in September of 2015. Our boat is a fresh water
boat all her life and we are going to be doing refits for blue water
cruising. So we'll have lots of questions that we hope we can find answers for.
After selling our previous boat we bought the Legend 37 knowing full well she is not considered the premier blue water boat. However, I own and operate heavy equipment
for a living and found over the years that you don't need the premier (meaning it says Caterpillar on it) equipment
for every application.
So our new boat is what we could afford to pay cash for without financing
and while she is in good shape structurally, she is not exactly in top condition cosmetically. She needs a lot of TLC (including a new paint
job). I hauled her home on my lowboy, picked her off the lowboy with the overhead traveling crane in my shop and set her on her cradle
. I hope to have her repainted, refit
and ready to splash by mid-summer 2014.
Now, before I ask any stupid questions I have a lot of reading to do because most of the questions I have are probably already answered on the forum
