svartsvensk is on a distinguished road
Apart from the many concerns voiced here about wood as a hull material (once more, my many thanks for your advice), the previous owner's use of 3M 5200 on the ballast/keel seam is what's got me the most concerned at the moment. This leak is a problem, and if it turns out I have to replace the keel bolts, I'm HOSED. If the rest of the boat is in great shape, that's all well and good, but this is a big gamble. Coupled with the short length at the waterline, I've got my eyes on other options, and even though the Hunter 36 I was looking at in MD has just sold, a 1984 Hunter 37 has just popped up in Florida.

Anyone know anything about this particular boat? I'm very encouraged by what I'm reading about the Hunters, and the 37 in general. The private quarterberth has got me all giddy - my kid could have his own room. I may just have to give these folks a call.
