Let's just make sure that this does not turn into another Hunter Bashing thread, etc. Please keep to the facts and present all the information. Also, if I feel the thread crosses the line into a personal vendetta, it is going to get pulled.

Although I do not mind an honest debate on marine products here, they typically degrade into something that we do not need or allow.

I have seen both sides of Hunter. I have seen some boats that were poorly designed or thought through. I have also seen, especially as of late, a genuine interest in making a better product. My personal prefence is still Catalina (of any of the production boats), but I would for once actually give Hunter a serious look.

This is not meant to take away from your personal issue that you are having with your boat, but I am curious what Hunter Marine has done to correct the problem. Have you contacted them? Are they aware of this? What was their solution?
