I note that the original post is from 2000, but in case others stumble upon this tread, I figured I'd respond...
I never owned one but I did charter a 2007 Hunter 410 in the Northern Chesapeake Bay on three different occasions. I also completed three or four ASA instructional courses on the same boat.
While I wouldn't take it across the Atlantic, for the Norther Bay it was ideal. The boat was laid out well and sailed relatively well in light wind. I've never had a problem with in-mast furling, but like someone else said, I think it's good until it goes bad.
So yeah, overall it's a good boat so long as you're not crossing any oceans.
