Re: Buying a Hunter 30...Another Update..

You making a LOT of big decisions on a first boat and big boat big money

Me for example on all my old boats when i cant date the life of the standing rigging it goes in the GARBAGE as who can say what is up there in what condition without taking it down and looking

ON the Cal 29 for example the wire was bad UNDER the furler and i would have never seen it IF i trusted it was fine

1970 Cal 29 Sea Fever

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Re: Buying a Hunter 30...Another Update..

I takes a lot of money, or (and?) a lot of know how in the DIY realm to successfully own an old large boat. I just don't think every good deal is a good deal for everybody.

You gotta keep in mind that none of the go for it folks are going to be there to help if/when you get stuck. She'll be all yours to deal with. It's easy to get sucked in by the allure of a deal boat and people egging you on who in all likelihood could themselves handle picking up a deal like the Hunter here. I could own that boat easily, but does that mean everyone can? It's just something to consider carefully.
