Do not quote me on this, but is the 1980 version Hunter still one of the Cheribuni one? if so, those are pretty seaworth, and worth taking a gander at. A 38' cutter on my dock has been from seattle to mexico and back, 3 times, twice on its own hull, and once via truck, may go back again via truck. ONLY because the owner and spouse do not want to sail at there 60 something age. they have owned the boat since new in 78 or there abouts!?!?!?!
Personally, those that I know that have Hunters, ALL like them! Yes they may be a chevy per say, maybe more a Kia or equal. but they do go forward more or less. Choose carefully! SOunds like the Hunter can cruise and gets from place to place!
She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
