The biggest knock for me on the h355 is the rarity of a deep keel version - not an issue for you...
This is why I put the question to the braintrust here! I thought all Hunters had the B&R. That is a nice looking boat, for sure. The 37.5 too. I could ding it for what looks to be a keel stepped mast, I guess. Which makes me ask: Am I being too picky on that issue? How do those who have these handle the rainwater that makes its way in, or is that not that common?
