Rather than criticize the boat, one might question the intelligence of the people who purchase them - in this case, their sales figures indicate there are a lot of people to whom you can voice your indignation.

You question the intellegence of the buyer of a boat you don't lke...a member of this forum. And when a lady calls you on it you insult her.
Real nice piece of work there

I do agree to a point. It's a much better sailboat than a power boat. The one we test sailed was really disappointing when it came to running up the motor. However I will say that even in the extremely light air we had that day we were still able to get some decent speed. Al that said, I still think the Hunter is WAY over priced for what you get.

I haven't tried a Mac so I have no basis for comparison.

I really do think that K1vsk was trying to say just the opposite of how you guys are interperting his remarks...but said it very poorly. He has said this in his further response (responding intemperately to an intemperate response).

May I suggest that we just let this die and take him at his word as he is not known here for beating up on people.

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

A few years ago there was a Mac across the floater and a few slips down from where I keep my boat. One day the Mac was coming back in and was having trouble getting into his slip because of the wind, he must of had the center board up. The cry went out out to "give it some gas." It took 6 of us to push it off the floater where it stopped, bow against the bow of the boat in slip across from his.

That can happen to any inexperienced boater though. My dad did something similar in his Chris Craft cabin cruiser. Wind was pushing him away from the slip so he gave it more gas. Too much more gas. Ended up punching a hole in the boat next to us. Luckily he knew how to work with fiberglass and was able to patch it.



Also so we're clear, My commentsL

were in response to seawitch's actual experience on board the 27E versus MY experience aboard the 27E.

Nuff said.
