PalmettoSailor will become famous soon enough
Not that I'll be in the market but I'd like to see the boat in person. My initial impression is that its not any more "dockish" than many other boats marketed as suitable for long term cruising. It seems to me that if the saloon berths can be rigged with lee cloths for use underway, that this would be more suitable than some other boats on the market. Worst case, it appears you'd have useable 2 sea berths in the convertable part of the aft cabin although that is not the most optimal location.

I'd have to see it myself, but it seems to me this boat is more like an IP interior than a Hunter.
