Thoughts on a Hunter 37-Cutter?

First off, this forum is an incredible resource. Thank you all!

Now, on to my questions... I am considering purchasing a 1983 Hunter 37-Cutter that is for sale on my lake. My use will be solely for lake sailing, a few overnights (for my family of 3), and entertaining. There will be a fair amount of single handing by me.

I have done a fair amount of research on these and it seems like this version of the Hunter was pretty well built. I have heard some concerns about the ports leaking, but overall it seems like there are minor complaints.

Does anyone have an opinion on this boat for my intended use? What are the known issues that I should be on the lookout for? How, specifically, does the build quality compare with a Catalina 36, Irwin, or a Pearson?

Thank you in advance for your insights!
