A ferro cement outrigger canoe with a junk rig perhaps? Maybe you could start a(nother) thread? .
Come on, the choice will be between a Gunboat 66 and a 118 WallyPower. Which one do you think is better and why? And can I tow a fuel barge behind the WallyPower, and do they make an icebreaker bow fitting for it? Which one do you think girls will find most macho?

i think chucles is pretty decided on a hunter

quote chucklet

Don't regret what you buy, buy a hunter 42 or 45, amazing fancy boat for 100k or under. Here is a video tour link, BTW they are famous for being fancy, roomy and having lots of storage


1992 Hunter 42 Passage sailboat for sale By: Ian Van Tuyl - YouTube

Re: Time to beat the big record.

How much knowledge do you need to be an expert on Hunters? Big, Slow and then they're big and slow. Oh, did I forget to mention they are big and slow? And with notable exceptions - they tend to carry crappy buckets

Took me years!

I have a nice bucket, but I took it off my Cal and moved it. So don't know if it counts.

Re: Time to beat the big record.

Yeah Atoll,

It's goddamn getting dark here in the mornings now (evenings too) and its raining and the sailing season is drawing to a close. The gals have all put their miniskirts away for the winter (ain't life sh*t!). And melancholy danes have started thinking about the bottle in the closet.

All that BS aside - Hunters do tend to carry crappy buckets (Don Lucas is an exception).

Re: Time to beat the big record.

But Don had to buy his bucket from the after market, or maybe he got a used one from z.

The reason good buckets come stock on those big fancy expensive boats is to make the buyer feel better about their over-priced piece of fiberglass! It's better to get a good boat without that stock bucket and then get the one you like and but all the savings into something important. Like beer!!!

Re: Time to beat the big record.

Maybe he can have buckets of salt to melt the Ice ?? Buckets can hold Many things !!! It really don't matter what boat he uses! even a slow hunter will haul buckets of salt! It wont make em any slower!!

Re: Time to beat the big record.

The only good thing about a Hunter is that 99% of the people that see one think that it is a true sea faring yacht..they do look nice .....

they're right, that's because 99% of people don't read internet boating forums

but keep it up and I'm going to drill a hole in your bucket, a small one so stuff will drip all over as you carry it without noticing
