Thanks to Carib Sailor for waking up this thread. I forgot that I started it.

I shopped and researching for over 5 years. During this time, I also built an okume core / cedar strip kayak. At the end of October 2012, I finally pulled the trigger and purchased the first boat I've owned which does not fit in my garage.

I got a 1981 OC40

I've only been a boat owner for a couple months. My advice, based on 5 years of shopping is this:

If you can't afford a new boat, go for a high quality used boat. I'm learning all sorts of new things I just removed a 30-year old holding tank yesterday.

Now those are beautiful boats! Much nicer than the Hunter for sure.
