I have a confession to make...

I may need to seek help as I don't know what to do about it. I think it's a very serious problem. You see, I've been looking at a lot of boats recently, and there is one that I kinda like, but it's making me ashamed, like liking that girl in high school that everyone thinks is a dork, you know that feeling?

I'm a minimalist kind of guy, I believe in having something adequate for the job at hand, I don't need a lot of frills or flash. Anyway while poking around in boats one model struck me as just that type of boat, and a boat I might even be able to afford new or a few years old (I would have to, it's a recent model) I poked and prodded it and it seemed to be a good quality, well built boat. well, err... Ummmm, here it is.......

It's a good looking boat in my eyes, small pic so maybe you can't see the name on it...



I mean, here it looks REALLY good, I'm so ashamed...


Ugh. Please shoot me now...

Looks like a Hunter 27; I'd do some charter sailing on one before I bought it (to be sure you like it as much as you do looking at it). It could be worse; you could be eyeing a McGregor.

Mike,

If you like it..BUY IT..don't ask us...you're only going to get more confused.

It's a Hunter, they make decent boats..

I actually like the cabin...

I'd buy it right now..honestely..

You buy a boat with your heart, not mine or any one here..

GO FOR IT...

Thanks Alex, I just might, we are buying a boat after next year, and the thought of ordering one exactly the way I like it is attractive, but it's also a $60,000 purchase, it's more than my house was. I have some time to think about it.

A Hunter is far better then a Catalina, just ask CD he'll tell you.
If you want it buy it, you can't take your money with you when you pass on.
Hunter makes a good boat.

Well maybe it's a style thing, I like Catalinas but hate every Hunter I ever laid eyes on, they are universally butt ugly, and I seem to pass every one I see on the water too, they all look under canvased...except this one, it just looks right.
