1993 Hunter 29.5 what do you think?
i am about to move from an older Dufour 31 cruising sloop onto a 1993 Hunter 29.5 and apart from what can be found on Hunter website do any of you have any thoughts comments regarding Hunter 29.5. How does it sail? How does it perform with shallow wing keel and pretty tall mast and big mainsail? I hear reefing is required over 18 knots of wind. I used to put first reef at 25 knots on my Dufour 31. How does it go downwind considering no backstay and two rows of back swept spreaders? Any comments good or bad are welcome.
