Currently looking to purchase
a 1986 Hunter
is listed in fair condition. On first inspection
I noticed a hairline crack on both the leading and trailing edge at the keel
In doing some internet
search on this topic, the condition appears on occasion, with most folks not really expressing a concern other than making a epoxy repair
and moving on. Someone did refer to this as the "Hunter Smile". - ok. (I have not yet had a survey
done on the boat).
Can anyone advise as to the seriousness of the problem, how to repair
or should I stay away from the boat
. I'm somewhat interested in the boat as the rest of the boat appears in fair condition for its age.
Appreciate any guidance, comments, thoughts or suggestions.
