hunter 34

I own a 1987 34ft hunter for the past 4 yrs. Your comments require comment. the compression post issue is a result of poor commissioning from new. a tube that houses the mast wires runs thru the deck inside where the mast sits. if this tube was not sealed up at commissiioning, water from the mast would run down to the compression post and would rot it out over time. my 87 was commissioned properly and has no signs of this. the model does list to starboard. you can either move somethings to the port(about 175lbs) or add some weight to the port.its not a structural thing to worry about. these are great boats. I have brought mine back to a 9 and perform only regular maintenance. They are very roomy 6ft 3 headroom, have a nice booth dinette and get lots of complements. I listed mine on boatrader today for 45k and it is one of the cleanest in the country. good luck. I want a smaller cape dory we are moving to the lake the my hunter is too big for my needs or i would take it in a flash.
