hello honeydo--my ericson 35mII is a sailboat---a hunter is not a sail boat...the location of the traveller is perfect. there is a cockpit well located abaft the binnacle and abaft the traveller---therefore cockpit drainage is not a problem. if the hunter had been designed by a proper designer, there would be no problem with your friends opinion. however, as bruce king is a designer of proper yachts, these ericsons function perfectly well in sailing conditions. ...just make sure you are not out in gale force winds....they reallly like lighter winds and are very very fast......btw---was pooped and drained verry verry fast---perfect set up
