Re: Why are there so many Hunter haters?
For what I can understand the ones that are exported to Europe have necessarily to pass RCD standards. What I found odd is that the ones for the US are built differently and will not pass those standards:
"All Hunters 34' and larger comply with the CE A design category. Those built for US ...lack various safety placards, stove shielding...."
Not quite. You didn't finish out that quote:
Those built for US delivery would have to have a serial number change that is not accepted by the US Coast Guard documentation service and lack various safety placards, stove shielding, and VHF radio specs required by the IMCI. Otherwise the construction is identical.
