When did Hunter have the deck-hull joint problem? I thought it was during the era when they were using the screws on the perforated toe rail to capture the hull. As I recall, there was a QA issue resulting from trimming away too much hull material prior to deck mating. The older, Chernubli (sp) Hunters are fairly rare on SF Bay. And fewer race so I cannot give you any specifics in relation to my C34. The Ericson 35 has a relatively higher aspect rig making it a little “noodlely” for sailing on the Bay. Catalina 34 and 36s have a pretty stout and stiff rig and buyers here are willing to pay a premium for the boat. The Catalina 34 and 36’s are probably out of your price range as they start around $50k and the ones in good condition are considerably higher and do not stay on the market long.
