Hunter 37 Cutter, Any one have any experience on one?

I just delivered one on a 100 mile trip which was to windward in 20 true for about 70 of those miles. I found the boat to be dry, stable, and with a solid feel banging into 8 foot waves. We had good boat speed considering the solid 3 blade prop. The yanmar motor powered us along very nicely when called upon.

This particular boat has several soft spots in the deck, one big one in front of the mast, and leaking ports. The owner intends to restore the boat.

I know of one other 37 cutter rig in our club that has sailed from NY to Bermuda w/o incident. One caution, the rudder on that boat bent and according to the owner it happened in the past year. He he has no idea how. I would wonder if other 37''s have rudder problems. The boat I delivered did have alot of weater helm.
