New Member with Question re: Hunter 40 Legend

Anyone have any experience with problems with deck delam on Hunters, if so what extent. Also how do they sail in heavy winds?

Hey sswiatlowski welcome to the forum.
Hunters have been around for a long time with varying methods and materials in their construction.
You may need to be more specific as to the model and year of manufacture.
Also posting this question in the Mono hull forum may get to more eyes.

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, sswiatlowski.

I’d venture to suppose that more than a few owners have experienced deck moisture problems on Hunters.

As noted, you'll probably get more useful information by specifying a model & year.

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you here and posting questions. I got myself into trouble for making a negative statement about a boat brand because it seems that it is somewhat like insulting one's mother to have an opinion about the quality of another's boat.
Just take that into consideration while questioning the quality of a build brand. You may not hear all the negatives.
kind regards,
