New Bilge Rat Hunter Owner
Hey Sailing community! Im a relatively new small sail boat owner. Over the summer I picked up this 81' Hunter 22 for what I think is the deal of my lifetime thus far.
Boat and accessories in great shape, all sails, well maintained outboard, trailer with new tires for the grand total of $500, off of a small town "trash and treasure" call in for sale radio show. The guy just had to get rid of it because he was moving and nobody in town had the time of knowledge or space to deal with it (i only had one of those things).
I have repaired and raced a few small boats with my dad, a 16' cat and 19' flying scott...and spent a summer as a deck hand on a sailing schooner which gave me some confidence to handle this thing. This is the biggest single toy I have owned haha. I certainly got my 500 out of it this summer, and there are many summers to go!
Build thread coming as i put in work this spring. I'm glad to be a part of the community!
My boat, the LIL' NELLIE
