Don't get hung up on the lake size issue. The area is the part of the lake around the marina. When all the inlets and tributaries are added up the lake is much bigger. It appears to me that Hunter had some serious quality control issues and styling miscues several years back and Glenn Henderson is trying to put it back in order. The B&R rig is still a real question. The Catalinas appear overbuilt in comparison, and the rig is conventional and more familiar. The H27 on paper would be a better performing boat, while the C28 would be stiffer in a blow. As we all know, however, sailing ratios and computer analysis don't tell the whole story. The C28 was strongly recommended by a current owner, as was the 320. The conventional wisdom on the C270 was not so good. The H27 is new and unknown. Comments?
