Re: Hunter 212
can a 6 feet tall person fit in the v-berth?

This boat is on my short list, started a thread here, you can check it out if you like:

edit: can't post links as my post count is less than 10, but my thread is in the boat buying section, easy to find

how do you find its sailing in light and heavy winds? I contacted Hunter Cs and they mentionned swing keel is only 130lbs out of the total 1800lbs, which started getting me worried about the boat`s stability, especially singlehanded. i see you've changed the keel back to a swing, any idea how much it weighs? how about the boat total weight? just curious if you've weighted them...Guess I want to make sure this boat has the ability to plane early, and that you`re not always finding yourself cutting down on your sail area to stay stable.
