My wife and i own a 1978 hunter 30 sd cherubini. It was intended to be our first boat, but many many upgrades, repairs, tweaks later we love it and dont want to part with it....the issue...we want to take it all over the big pond and live aboard. Besides tankage, what reason would we really have to need to go bigger, newer, different style boat, ect if we are comfortable with what we have? Looking to hear from others that have made long trips in various different weather conditions and what their thoughts are. Please dont hold back....nothing is more valuable then old salt perspectives.
