are stupidly expensive.
We have raced ours occasionally and done reasonably well. It is a heavy boat and likes a little more wind
We have cruised it extensively on the Great Lakes
and also took it from Windsor, Ontario
down to the Exumas
and back. We are fortunate to have one with the shaoal draft
of 5' 6". If you want more info on the boat or our experiences with it you can check our blog at afeica.wordpress.com
I don't really think the early Hunters were of the highest quality and I would think twice about going offshore
with one, but that is just one persons opinion.
I looked at your blog very nice boat. I think im gonna go with the beneteau
first 38 or 375. Have you been on a first 38? it looks very similar just a little longer. There are many good reviews
and seems to be the perfect boat for my intentions. I also will be trying to find one with shoal draft. Is the aft berth pretty comfortable for two? Is there anything i should look for besides the headliner
for common problems? I will have the boat surveyed for sure. I live in north idaho so i wont be looking till spring when i sell my house and head to florida
or somewhere on the east coast
. I appreciate the information.
