I started a similar thread on another forum. In the end after reading all I could find and disregarding all "I heard this from someone who heard it from ..." I decided the much bad mouthed Hunter's are pretty good boats, period! If you go to their website they even have production videos of the boats, what other manufacturer does?
So in the end I went from a Hunter non-believed and basher to a believer. I feel my Hunter 410 is constructed as good as anything, and a lot better than lots (better I feel than my old Cal-39 that was considered a "good" boat). Sure it doesn't have all that fancy wood to spend your extra time on, and maybe it is just too comfortable for those on dark crowded boats to accept!
To answer the orginal question I feel my 2001 Hunter 410 is a bluewater boat with a CE A rating! I would take it anywhere I have the courage to do so, knowing it will out perform me any day!
