I've sailed a couple Hunters and been very happy with their performance. These were post '95 models, so I can't make a judgment about the earlier builds that may have had structural problems. I have a friend with a 3 year old Catalina that's been plagued with a laundry list of issues. So per the previous posts - any company will have it's detractors. I think that sailors making negative comments about Hunters just haven't been aboard any recent models or sailed the boats themselves.
