I too didn't realize Hunter used balsa coring in the hull. Looks like it's strictly above the waterline, but still not something I'm crazy about. I suppose in a new boat that you maybe only plan to keep for 10 years before trading up, it might be ok. Or if you're fanatical about checking and/or rebedding deck hardware and thru-hulls.

eMKay - Did you get to see any of the electrical and plumbing installations? If so, what's your take on the process?
Well, on the hull there is no hardware or through-hulls in the balsa, it's above the waterline. As for the plumbing and electrical it's like every other boat I guess. The wiring is run through conduits and looks pretty organized.
