We are looking to buy a boat in the Northeast for day and weekend sailing for two couples. We're very interestes in a 1994 Hunter 36 Vision. It has a free standing mast which is something we haven't seen on many boats. I can see the pros of this system - no standing rigging to gwt in the way or break down, large main sail for easier sailing. What's the down side? Could anyone give their opinion on this kind of setup? Thanks!
