Shut up!!! Are you serious????
You did a great job with that interview Jeff. In general, did you come away as a bit more of a believer?
That is amazing....The endless lifespan of the Internet never ceases to floor me. I compiled, re-wrote the questions, conducted and edited that series of interviews and discussions almost 12 years ago, and the amazing part is that it still exists on-line.
The one thing that does not appear in your quote and I did not see on the webpage was the discussion about the purpose of Hunters. The jist of that discussion was that Hunter was targeting the budget oriented, coastal cruising marketplace. That should come as no surprise. As a result, where compromises were required they were biased toward that goal rather than offshore capabilities. The compromises are in areas that are not covered by ABYC or the CE ratings such as interior layouts, hand holds and footholds.

I guess from your explanation above, I'd come away thinking I got a hell of a coastal cruiser that is pretty tough. And that's the antithesis of the general mindset on Hunters.
