Re: hunter 31 tall

the older hunter 31 has a I measurement of 42' and the newer models have the 32.5'.
the I measurement is from the top of the mainsail to the deck measured at the bow fitting

What year is the boat? Some boats (like Catalina 30 for example) had a choice of rigs - standard and tall. The tall rig was for lighter air locations or those who wanted to race.

Re: hunter 31 tall

this is a 1986 hunter 31. it has a rigging that is non typical with more diagonals between the 2 spreaders. looks really stiff. still has the double stern stays with pulleys to tighten and flex the mast.
