As I said before I think something like this would sell quite well where I live (I actually like the thought of it). Especially if the mast can be lowered and stepped easily. Lake Norman has a lot of low bridges that locks sailboats into certain areas of the lake. Plus the wind here is very unpredictable.

Then of course there is the difference of opinion pointed out above (wife wants sail, hubby power etc.). 75 hp is an adequate amount of power to make the most avid tuber or skier happy. Wakeboarders too as long as there's a tow hook on the mast.

That's ok, I hate Microsoft but you know what. I don't give them any of my money.

You gotta hand it to them though, they found a way to get people sailing (and spending money) who might not have otherwise.

It is a love/hate relationship, love it when all systems work at the same time and after 2 yrs we are pretty damn close to that goal.

Now we just need to find out why the cabin sole on a boat that just might get a little wet would warp

The only reason T37Chef is ignoring this thread is that he knows he wants to go right out and buy one of these new boats...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Talking It all depends on what your needs are at the time

Go to my review of the boat. I purchased hull #3 the first boat sold from the factory. Go to the link below and read my article about the boat after taking it out for a sale on the Eastern seaboard ICW from St. Simons Island Ga to St. Augustine Fla. I thinkyou will see why people buy this boat. Thx.

Hunter 27 Edge.I was reading a blog on the internet about a rumor that Hunter was going to build a new generation of motor sail boats. I knew Hunter built quality sailboats and I was very hopeful this was more than a rumor. I picked up the phone and

Thanks for the link. I'll check it out. Personally I didn't like it. I had the opportunity to take it out on a test sail back in Early November. I also wrote a review on the boat from a powerboater's/sailing newbie's perspective.

Here's my review:

Hunter Edge

I have actually spend time on her .. yes she is not a "Blue blood" sail boat , and not a power boat , she is a morph as you know .. I believe she is a better sailing boat than a Mac ( I have sailed those to) ,
I believe she is a good solution to some one who just start out ,and performance is not the priority in a classical meaning ..
you can learn the basics, she will do the job .She would be good an a river to get home against the grain if you run out wind or time ..
Usually people who buy those will upgrade in a few season .. and In that prospective she is a great option ..
That Edge is bigger and more room inside. cockpit is bigger and perhaps a bit more boat then The Mac Gregor
I know all you "purist" hate the idea all together .. but It is way better then a run about sort of something .. and this boats eventually turn they owners to a "real sailboat" most of the time ...
