Awesome boat, Smack! I'm envious and jealous!

No - this is our coastal boat. She's in Kemah on Galveston Bay. The entire planet is now our playground.

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

Congrats, When you get the rail in the water on that boat you'll know you are moving.

p.s. wet side deck on that era hunter usually indicates the port lights need resealing

Thanks dream. Actually the wet area is on the foredeck, just forward of the v-berth hatch. The side decks were nice and dry. The boat was raced for a while and there were a couple impact points where someone probably dropped the spin pole which likely allowed some moisture in - so we'll get it all fixed up.

The first order of business is new standing rigging. Ouch! I so wish I was in Florida so Knothead could do it for me. Bummer.

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

BTW - I added a good deal more detail to the post regarding how I budgeted and calculated things as I went through the shopping and buying process. Hopefully it'll help those newbs who wonder how to approach the whole thing:
