Hi Rob

Which of the 355s listed locally are you looking at?

I do think that that model/year of Hunter is a good choice for our area.. decent/good layout, nice galley and reasonable cockpit. I also like the conventional fractional rig and frankly quite like the 'look' of the boat esp vs the following 'hot tub cockpit' series that replaced it.

The one in Ladner had some serious issues when we looked at it; I've not seen the one in West Van, but did look at a bit of a 'one-of' wrt to rig and sail controls, that I've been told is now off the market. There's an absolutely cherry one privately for sale in Heather Civic, very well kept but is priced a tad high....

As to the engine I think you'll find that model on a lot of boats... if it's been looked after I'd not worry too much on that score.
