hunter 37c sloop???
hi all. have a couple of questions about a hunter 37c. i went to look at one slipped at lake mead. seems very solid. boat has been well kept. new port lights. sails and standing rigging three years old. new interior cushion, canvas.
question: the boat has been converted to a sloop. the owner has put a roller furler on the jib with a huge genoa. not sure how big. is this a good thing?? i dont know much about stresses on rigging, chain plates etc, so i''m wondering if this setup is good for the boat?? wouldnt a split rig spread out the loads better?? could it have already damaged something i cant see??
other than that , it is in good to very good condition. have crawled around it quite a bit, looks good. anyway, i''m getting pretty serious about this old gal but would like some input on the modified rigging. thanks for your time. regards, jeff
