Contrats Smak, we just had our '83 H34' out for the first time and what a ride. You'll love that 40.

Great idea! Don't forget about the chain plates though. Pull and inspect, or better yet, since pulling is most of the labor, pull and replace.

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

Congrats Smack! Quite a leap from a Cat 27! That era of Hunter is definitely better looking than some of the newer ones, and it looks like you got a pretty good deal on her.

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

Dear Mr. Perry,

I just wanted to say thank you for your kind gift. We were so excited when we saw the box. The boys asked me, "Who's Robert Perry?". I told them that you are a world famous yacht designer who had been very kind to us. We tore open the box and...



...ahm, wow, the HTFU hat and a jar of Vegemite! Let's give her a go boys!



Smells a little off. Well, down the hatch-o!



Oh good lord!



Quinn says he doesn't care if you're a "world famous yacht designer" - he hates your guts.

Jesse kind of likes it.

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

Don't know how I missed this, Smack, but congrats.. I've always said those were good, solid and good value boats, along with the other Legend series. This looks like a good one and for a good price too.

But what happened to 'TWO footitis???

Two, thirteen - it's all the same.

BTW - was that you spoutin' off in that rescue thread about boneheads buying '40'ers as their first ride? What are you implying, pal?

Don't believe I used the word 'bonehead'..... and it's not your first ride .. Sorry to disappoint but I wasn't even thinking of you at the time...

Seriously, though.. in '92 we went from 28 to 40 feet too.. it's one hell of a step up in 'boat', and yours is a slightly bigger boat still. Do the boys get the aft cabin??

I took the aft cabin on this last run. One boy took the v-berth and the other the settee. The A/C doesn't duct all the way back to the aft cabin - so the v-berth and salon are way cooler. Even so, the aft cabin was fine with the doors open and a fan pushing the cool air back there.

You're right though, this is one monstrous boat after that C27! It's kind of sobering.
