    There is a nice looking 2014 h33 for sale that seems great in several ways, and reviews I've seen are positive. The one thing I noticed was the vinyl liner in the v-berth was peeling off on one side. I assume this could either be a flaw in the adhesive application, or a moisture or water ingress issue. Do any Hunter owners have any experience with liner adhession issues, and were they easily resolved? Is this common?

    Are you referring to the head liner or wall liner. The head liners are stretched across retaining tracks at the sides. The liner is pushed in with a dull paint scraper into the track It's a bit of a PITA. Hunter has a nice hull deck joint that generally doesn't leak although a stanchion could at a screw. It's a nice coastal cruiser. The Hunters from 2000 and on were well built regardless of what you have heard. If that's your only issue, buy the boat.

    It's the wall liner. I'll give it another look. Thanks for the feedback!
