Help with H260

Claudia:

Everything you were afraid to ask about the H260 is contained in this website.

Mistress of Grand Traverse

There you will find a checklist and pictures that show how to rid and de-rig the boat.

There is also tons of information on :SailboatOwners.com - Home

Go into the forum for hunter boats.

There people who are familar with the boat will help you. That's the place to post questions about your boat.

Check the archives for more detailed info. You can also send a message to me at h260@h260.com for more help.

This is turning out to be a good idea so far. Apparently there is a guy volunteered by another guy who works at a local dealer that is "always willing to help a fellow sailor".
Also, customer service at Hunter believes the sales department may have a short video on this. I'll have to call on Monday.
I hope it works out. I'm so used to rude car dealers (unless you're buying a car).
I've never bought a boat myself and figured dealers would be more like car salesmen. I never thought they'd be willing to help.

Thanks for your suggestion!

Hunter 260-Help!

My father passed away last week. He had a 2002 Hunter 260 which he willed to me and she's currently in the water in Texas (I have the trailer for it). I need to take her down and move her but I have no idea how.

I've downloaded the official owner's manual but it seems to assume I understand what things like the "mast raising pole" and such look like. Perhaps as if I bought it new and everything is packaged and labeled, but this is not the case.
My experience has been many years with a sunfish and an 80's Hunter 33. Otherwise, I know nothing about other sailboats including trailerable sailboats.

Currently she's located in a rural area and is the only sailboat at the marina so nobody there is able to assist. I don't know anyone who knows how to take down or rig a trailerable sailboat who can come with me. I'm very worried that I'm going to screw something up since I have so little knowledge of this boat.
I've searched google and have found a lot of references with dead links regarding the H260. I searched youtube hoping for a video, but haven't come up with anything yet.

Does anyone have any suggestions for me?

Thanks for any help in advance.
