You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Please let me know if you know somebody who is planning to sell.

I've been already monitoring dealer inventories. I'm more interested in private sales so that I can at least receive answers from somebody who knows the boat rather than hearing "it's a great boat. come and see it". I have no problem in driving or flying a few hundred miles but I like to first hear direct answers to my direct questions such as when was the compression post was changed or what's the rust status at chainplates. Please let me know if you know somebody who is planning to sell. Thanks.

Not sure where you are located but there is a 1984 Hunter 34 for sale (privately) at my marina...Port of Newcastle Lake Ontario.
Port of Newcastle
377 Baldwin Street,
Newcastle, Ontario,
L1B 1C1,
Phone: 905-987-5251, Fax: 905-987-3033

Boat appears to be in great shape, several upgrades. Think he is asking $38000.00

If you call, the boat is called "Sea Beyond"

Good Luck

Thanks Dave and all

Thanks Dave.

I've seen that boat. Another friend also showed interest in that boat as it looked great in pictures. We both decided to show no further interest since we are both focused on items such as chainplates, keel joints, condition of the bottom and hull, etc.

Since I'm looking for a Hunter 34 to keep for a long while I'm focused on structural items. I would rather change items like rigging or engine than chainplates or keel bolts.

My observation is that most people do not mind to spend money on visible items such as cushions or instruments but are not willing to spend any money on items that they don't see including the bottom. That includes spending 25 cents a year to grease chain plate surfaces or engine mount bolts to prevent heavy rusting or a dollar a year for a sealant to prevent leaks to the compression post or deck core.

I would like to thank all who have posted to or reviewed this thread. Honestly I wasn't even hoping to receive any replies. Your intention to help to a fellow sailor is MOST appreciated.

Ted
