There are a lot of Hunter haters out there, but I wouldn't hesitate to get one. Actually, I have one.

Also, there may not be much wood, but the wood that is there is structural. Keep that in mind if you go and look at it. It is not just trim pieces. There is also wood used for deck core in the transom, chainplates, and mast step area.

Good luck, but don't shy away from it because of what you read on the net. It would be a great boat for you.
