Hunter 27 revival post #1 1/12/10

It's official, the boat is mine. I went down today to collect the sails, cushions, batteries,and begin the work. First of all, the electrical system is a joke, everything non-Hunter has to go. The previous owner may have been an excellent aircraft mechanic, and maintained the engine perfectly, but he knew nothing about boat electrical. he has 2 batteries in there, a Die Hard sealed car battery (11.5v) and a "USED BATTERY" No kidding! look!



aaaHAHAHAHAHA! used battery. Gonna be used as a core for trade in along with the other one. This is where the batteries and charger were before I ripped everything out, this is under the chart table, in the 1981 and up models there is a seat here, I am going to convert this cabinet into a seat like this one here (2nd pic)...

1980


1981. This is not my boat, but one I tried to buy.


So I will be moving the batteries underneath the seat just behind the switch panels.

Here's everything I took home, 4 sails (1 good one) cushions, and my storage hatch board template



What is it with people and Home Depot hardware on boats? Unacceptable. This is the genoa clew. The genny is in pretty good shape, it's the only newer sail, rest are original. main and 2 hank on jibs, anyone want them?





I also shoveled off the boat and removed the boom so the yard can drop the mast in preparation for shipping

i will take the main as it might be better than mine.

if you need anything like pics or drawings of anything my boat has not been modded at all just let me know

edit what are you doing with the geeny? as i only have a 110 hank on right now?

edit number 2 i have the plex cover that is supposed to go over the electric panel if you want a template to make a new one

Keeping the genny, it's in great shape and fits the furler. I just got done measuring the foot, it's only 14' so it's a 110 not really a genny. Unless you mean the old hanked on one? I have 2 of those, one bag is labeled "jib" so that must be the factory 110%, the other one is not labeled but when my wife gets home she can help me measure the foot of that one. Both of those sails are in ok shape, I'm sure they are blown out a bit. The main is in terrible shape though, fraying up near the headboard. But if you want it, or all 3 just pay the shipping and they are yours.

Looks like you have a bit of work ahead of you. Make sure you allow for outside ventilation to the battery compartment. "Used Battery Company" - haven't come across that brand before.

I think I inherited a couple of the UBCs on our boat, but they were cleverly re-branded

It's been a while since I've seen a pushbutton "radiotelephone".
