Also note that there are several flavors of the Hunter 27'. Look on this website for all the varieties: HUNTER 27 sailboat on
The generic H27 fin keel model or the tall mast (TM) version may be the best sailors. I'd avoid the shoal draft (SD) and winged keel (WK) versions are probably not necessary on your great lake. They even make a tall mast with shoal draft version (TM SD) for some reason.
That's my biased opinion, fwiw.
