Hunter 376 for full time cruising and liveaboard?

Is anyone fulltime cruise on Hunter 376? Iíd like to hear some opinions on this yacht. I really like layout of this yacht, looks like perfect for live aboard and cruising-roomy interior, stall shower, shoal draft, etc. What I want to hear: is it adequate tankage (water, fuel, holding) on this yacht? Also: I little worry about BBR rig without backstaysÖ Is anyone upgraded for Z-spar in mast furling? If yes, how much it was? And one more, storage (is there enough room for generator, dive compressor, and general storage for provision etc.)?
Please, I donít want it to be discussion about Hunters by people who never sail or owned one, just real thing. OK?

I think the earlier H375 Legend is a better boat, esp the rig. The H355 of the same era has a huge cockpit locker to stbd that might accommodate your extras even better.
