Re: Lets choose SmackDaddy's new boat...

By the way, the boat I was commenting on was the earlier Hunter 40 and not the Hunter 405. The 405 was a later design and one that I am barely familiar with. The deep keel Hunter 40 went to weather very well. The 405 was a fractional rig and generally had less than 5'-0 draft shoal keels with winglets and so might not go to windward very well. They also had rolled out hull to deck joints which are far more vulnerable than the 40's through bolted inward flange.

And I too want to say that I am very glad to see you back on the board and starting to think in a forward direction.
