    I think it is a great idea. I know I asked several times questions that I found later on had already been answered previously, yet you all took time to guide me. I also found the owners mods file very helpful. ( I am in the process of building a new anchor roller as shown in the mods file). It should be required reading for all newbies.

    Well, if we can keep this site up and going

    I know I used to visit this site lots to get ideas and upload my revelations, but I got busy with other stuff and when I came back, it had been put on hold and I don't remember if it was because of no moderator or because of a 'site rewrite'? There's lots of things that all of us are learning and it sure would be cool to have a place to share all of this, huh?
    I'm enjoying a renewed motivation to share here mainly because I'm completed some cool projects and I wanna show off what I've done. More pics and specs to come from me. I encourage others to keep up the good work at submitting threads and pics. Thanks, I've enjoyed them and they've been useful.

    Jose Guidera (Guidera48) is too modest! He's done a fantastic job of restoring his '79 and documenting what's been done with plenty of photos and explanations. For the 37c Hunter owner, it is a knowledge base in itself. Thanks to all the Hunter owners for the knowledge base and information that this "Newbie" finds essential! -Greg Olausen, owner of '82 37c
