    Hi Kenomac,
    Last year you advised someone to contact you on the virtues, or otherwise, of a Hunter 456 Passage. We are looking to buy one in the med for use in the Ionan and around the Med. We are just about to make an offer but would like to know the good and bad. We are experienced sailers with a Jeanneau SO 37 in UK. We wanted a bit more of a mobile swimming platform so brilliant upwind performance is not a premium consideration. We thought the boat to be luxurious below decks and would hope the sailing ability is not an embarrassment. Your advice would be most welcome.

    Hello Kenomac, Would like to check out the gun owners forum as I am a gun owner and would like to get info on carrying a weapon on board for family protection. What do I need to do to be included?

    I saw you post from about a year ago regarding the Hunter 456. It said contact you directly for "the god, bad, and ugly" on the 456. I'm seriously considering one right now. I would appreciate hearing your comments.
    Thanks, Nick

    That does surprise me about the DZR fittings. The marine industry seems to have assumed it is ok in boats. Perhaps yr boat was moored close to another boat that was leaking stray currents in the water.

    I know new MD of Oyster. A good friend. I bought a Beneteau Oceanis 400 (hull#1) from him many moons ago when he was MD of Beneteau UK. The Beneteau is still going strong after 23 yrs and only had one problem with brass stopcocks in all that time. Think that was also a stray current problem bec it was v close to a dehumidifier.

    hope to come across you in the Med sometime. I will be on my Italian friend's 53 (which he got after the Oyster) 3-18 July from Stintino, Sardinia to Ibiza. "Pepolo". Then in Croatia on a Jeanneau 45DS which i have chartered 8-29 Aug, Split-Dubrovnik-Split. "Zsaffi". Am intending to buy a 2008/2009 Jeanneau 45DS early next yr.

    What is the name of yr 53?

    Ken, that's one great boat name. I spent many days in my youth exploring the Orinoco. One of the most beautiful places on earth. Best wishes.

    This AP problem was the least of what went on

    Hi Ken,
    Where are the best places to visit on your island? We only plan on spending around a week there and prefer anchoring over marinas. We are in Menorca and plan on working our way down the south coast for the next week. Cheers, Robert

    Thanks for your comments and Friend request. I am happy to accept. To make you feel real good I went for a walk in the falling snow yesterday. However most of it did melt away as soon as it hit the ground.

    Oh, by the way, Oysters have always been on my dream list. I just don't like the trend that they and Hallberg/Rassy are following.

    Hi, Kenomac.

    Thank you for the answers you provided to my questions. I appreciate the benefit of your experience. I think you have saved me from wasting a lot of time looking at that boat and perhaps even serious consequences from a purchase.

    My impression is that your sentiments are almost universal on CF. I haven't dug through all the archives yet, but there was a thread recently on center cockpits. For budgetary reasons, the poster specifically requested a mass production boat. Conspicuously missing among the 4 dozen or so brands favorably mentioned (and, actually, not mentioned at all) were Hunter and Beneteau. I was surprised at the omission of the latter since a few days ago, in a different thread, I thought Dockhead had commended Beneteau as an authentic blue water boat.

    Anyway, thanks again. I appreciate you taking the time to enlighten me.
