Looking at a Hunter 25, need advice.
I went out to a marina to look at a 1978 Hunter 25 and absolutely loved it. The boat seems to be in amazing condition but has two things I am not sure how to handle:
There is no engine - Can anyone provide any links or advice about what horsepower outboard would be the minimum on a boat like this?
There is a crack in the paint all the way around the top of the keel where the metal and fiberglass meet. It seems like this would be normal - but I would feel alot more at ease to have some way to back up that assumption.
Any advice on these issues or Hunter 25s in general would be very much appreciated.
