Re: Hunter 420 for a live aboard?


Boat would be used for local coastal cruising. weekends to Catalina, and a couple weeks off in the summer for wandering close to home.


If i went with the in mast auto furler, i would definitely purchase one that had it already. There is a 2004 in my area for sale right now.

I did not understand your bath tub/bucket comment.

I have never heard about a boat wandering in reverse. Usually they pull to one way or the other. I bet that would be quite sporty solo.

It doesn't get that cold here in San Diego, but i imagine i could had a real heater.

Do you still have your 420?
Do you know what the differences are between the series 1 and 2?
There is very limited info on the Internet. Do you have any other suggested resources?
