Just an update to the thread. The Hunter Passage is a great boat.....if all you want to do is liveabord. No sea berths! Not a place one to sleep under sail. The curved Salon Settees are beautiful but not a place to lay down. The forward and aft cabins both have island berths so no place to sleep there. They appear fairly solid, deep bilge, lots of storage but just won't work for open ocean.
Looked at an older Gulfstar CSY 44.....built like a tank! This appears to be one SOLID boat. The first one had some issues with regards to what appears to be a lack of care for the boat. That or she's just sat for a while now. Have found another one that appears from the photos to be beautiful and well cared for. We will get down to look at her this week or next.
I'm learning something that I really didn't expect. I fail to see how some brokers stay in business. In Kemah over the weekend we tried to make an appointment to see a couple of boats and the broker just flat lied to me regarding his intentions. Despite talking to him on the phone twice, both calls initiated by me, he never once returned my calls. All the while bragging about he was one of the largest brokers in Kemah. Well, he was also one of the largest A**H****....we drove 10 hours to get to Kemah. Thankfully we had several other boats we looked at while there so the trip wasn't a total waste. Anyone that is interested can PM me and I'll be more than happy to give out names.
