Hunter 320/326 for liveaboard/coastal cruising

Will be retiring Aug of 2006, planning on buying a boat for liveaboard/costal and inland cruising. Currently have an H26 which I enjoy and am leaning towards a 320 or 326 when I move up. Will be singlehanding and wonder if anyone has an opinion on the suitablity of the Hunter. Would eventually like to venture into the Caribbean, as my skills grow.

My Suggestion Is To Take Coast Guard Courses In Navigation And Safety And Be Sure You Know How To Handle That Hunter Of Yours The Best Possible. Also Be Careful As To What Time Of The Year You Plan Your Trip. I Was Caught In A Hurricane Off Of California Back In The Late 80's In My Catalina 25, Believe Me You Don't Wsant That. Going Through 20 Foot Round Swells And Winds Approaching 80 Knotts, Like I Was, Is Not The Place To Be. Your Hunter Is A Safe Boat. Just Be Smart. Good Luck.

Mirhon-

First, you probably should be checking the dates of posts before replying, as you've been reviving threads that have been dead for over six years. Second, PBzeer didn't get the Hunter AFAIK, and is currently cruising in an Ontario 32 IIRC.

Third, is there any reason you are capitalizing every word in your post? Did you not learn how to type properly??? Or is English not your native language—or one you understand properly???

I'd highly recommend you read the POST in my signature to help you get the most out of your time here. It has tips on searching sailnet, writing a good post, etc..

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Thanks for the corrections. Just joined and was trying to be an active member. Will be more careful in the future. Getting back into sailing in accouple of months after being away for quite sometime. Looking forward for sure. I am looking at the Catalina 36. Give me your opinion I would be curious. Thank you.
