erickbou Learning how to post pictures

seems that being more streamlined with less windage this could be a faster boat than the regular Cherubini 33. The Interior configuration is exactly the same though.

erickbou Thank you! The sailing lessons went well for my wife and she didn't get sea sick. Your are right it is a Cherubini design but this one is a little unusual with a streamlined deck. I don't see many of them out there. I will post pictures as soon as I can. The PO took great care of it with lots of add on options and that is why I went all the way to Boston to get it instead of something local. It does have some issues that I consider minor work that I can do.

I am looking forward to having it here in Miami.

Brezzin Congrats That's a great design by John Cherubini. I owned a 1982 for over 18 years and really loved the boat. If the PO took care of it then you have a good platform for your project boat. Tell your wife that the boat is a forgiving boat and it's really easy to sail.

Now owners of a 1978 Hunter 33

I am new here and just purchased a 1978 Hunter 33. It is a project boat that was discussed here on another thread with a problem keel but I hope to start sailing her within the next few weeks. We are moving it from Boston to Miami within the next 2 weeks.

My wife is affraid of the idea of the boat but is ready to conquer her fears by starting sailing lessons tomorrow. I have never sailed either but grew up around a 24 footer cabin cruiser that my father owned in the 70s.

Have not named her yet either.
