19K now.. for that amount of water damage to the settee backs there must have been totally sodden cushions sitting there for months.. Hull/deck leaks seem unlikely given Hunter's fasteners are all outside the hull in the flange.

Sad story here but at this rate it may hit the appraised 36K before it's done.

Hunter's don't appeal to me, but this one might be a good value for someone who likes them.

Omatako, you may be right that it hasn't been submerged -- I just don't know, though. To my eye, it looks like it got pretty darn wet belowdecks.

I was wondering if it had filled up while on land. Last year we had tremendous amount of snow fall for these parts, with over 3 feet of snow on the ground at once. If it was left unattended, uncovered, the freeze-thaw cycle might have opened up the seams in those fixed and opening portlights, or the cockpit scuppers could have been frozen solid and water could have entered through the companionway.

Potentially a lot of boat for the money (plus some elbow grease), depending what it goes for.

sailingfool will become famous soon enough
Anyone who pays anything for this boat will at least lose everything they pay... the real question is how much more...Bad decks, bad engine, bad interior, there it has already gone negative...

Yep, bought my 23' O'day for $1200 and already have more than that in it. It doesn't take long. This boat would make an owner out of you quick!

Well..it's at the survey price right now like Code said...$36,600 or so..I'd have to think that is ALL this boat could be worth but some will no doubt disagree in the final 3 days and I bet she passes up past 40 grand with little issue...she might clean up pretty well though for someone and be a good harbor queen even if she isn't ready for primetime..
