Re: Why are there so many Hunter haters?
Honestly I don't get it. It is identical except for "lack various safety placards, stove shielding". That was what I said, I said also that did not understand why those safety items are not included in the US boats.
Oh, I thought you were saying that they weren't constructed to the same offshore rating standard - (that they were "built differently')..
As for why the safety placards, stove shielding, and vhf specs are different here...I have no idea. But that difference in how they're equipped doesn't mean the US Hunters are "built differently" or any less capable offshore than the European boats (at least the way I read it). That was my point.
