Before you go nuts with renovations, renovating an '83 Hunter 34 to "original condition" is not going to pay off. Consider first to what use you intend to put the boat and then see what you really need to enjoy sailing on it. I had a flare-up using the alcohol stove that came with my boat, and decided to change it to propane...Well, I never got around to that, but I did bring a Coleman stove aboard and we cooked bacon and eggs and "stove toast" and coffee on a plank across the back of the cockpit in the mornings and barbequed on a Force 10 propane BBQ on the rail in the evenings. That and a Koolatron (we had just an icebox in which we kept dry goods) worked for us quite well. Once I brought a very small microwave aboard that we would run from shore power to heat up soups or to reheat Chinese food or something but generally we found nice and simple worked for us and we wanted for nothing over two week cruises.
