Posted this in another forum, and now realize it was probably the wrong one. This Hunter 30 was retrofit with an electric motor. The owner told me he had a tough time finding space for 12 Batteries (I'll bet!). The boot stripe at the Stearn and top of the rudder are well out of the water (not a great photo, I know). Don't know if the new motor has anything to do with it, but it appears to me she is totally off her lines, and has to be adversely affected under sail. Yes, No, thoughts?
Multiple post, please delete this one. (I'll get my act together, I promise!)

She won't be affected when sailing. Just a little more responsive as she is lighter until you put in the 12v batteries for that electric motor. Count on adding up to 200lbs worth of batteries if you plan to use that motor much. This will still be a little lighter than the motor that was yanked and you get to spread the weight better fore and aft. You also lose the fuel tank which should give you a place for a battery or 2.
