Re: Looking at a boat tomorrow

That's what I was thinking...I'll add that this boat is in the water and the owner is willing to take it out for a sail tomorrow...I'll at least take a swim and check out the keel...

The 76 Hunter 30 that i'm working on buying has this horrible yellow paneling in on the cabin walls/around the galley...Has anybody attempted to paint over this or is there a better way to replace it?

Re: Got the survey today!

From what I've read this boat came with the 12hp Yanmar...survey says 8...either way, how concerned should I be about it being under powered?
