    My 1980 Hunter 30 rennovation

    Fuligule, Absolutely beautiful job! You have inspired me to get to work on my "new to me" 1980 H30, Voracity..... Lots of great ideas from what you have done. One of the areas on Voracity that needs attention soon is the cover to the engine that sits on the cockpit floor. It too was...

    Replace old bladder waste holding tank on 1980 H30

    Thanks Mike... Good suggestion on the vent... Did you support the new tank with any sort of plywood platform under it, or just the teak cleats, somehow? I am headed to the boat later today and hope to do the measurements and have a plan in place by the end of the weekend... I suspect that...

    Replace old bladder waste holding tank on 1980 H30

    Hi all... I posted this on the Hunter forum and did not get any responses... Might be no one has experience with this specifically on a Hunter so I thought I would post it in this forum as well.... Sorry for the redundancy, but am hoping for some input/information before I start to tackle...

    Replace a bladder waste tank on a 1980 H30

    I need to replace an old bladder waste holding tank on my 1980 H30. Currently the bladder is under the port side V-berth. I would like to replace it with a solid tank, if at all possible. We do not need a very large one as it is mostly myself and occasional overnight guests and we pretty much...

    Music on board

    Last year I picked up a pair of the Jam speakers at Best Buy. Got them for a few reasons. One was the small form factor. They are so small and easy to store pretty much anywhere onBoard. Another reason was the price. And the third reason was the fact that you can play them in a stereo mode...

    What sets SBO apart

    Ditto.... Plus the wealth of knowledge shared here is amazing... Been so helpful to me as I am preparing for my first season with a 1980 H30 that had been on the hard for the last 3 years that I purchased this past fall.... She splashes soon and I am certain I will have many projects to...

    Cleaning cabin floor

    They look terrific KB.... Inspires me to try that on mine..... However, I was on the boat this weekend.... A tad bit cold and getting colder each day, as it is 6 degrees outside my house right now. One of the floors boards on the starboard side near the galley appeared to be rotted...

    Cleaning cabin floor

    Kristin.... It looks terrific.... Not sure I would have the patience to do that, but to have that sort of results would be worth it... Once I get back on the boat I will look at it closer and try to determine just how much work will be involved.... Am holding off on the Plasteak partially...

    Apex, I love the thought... But not sure if you really meant Historical or Hysterical....

    Cleaning cabin floor

    Do you know where I could get Orange Oil? Lowes? Is there a brand name for it? If I can avoid replacing or even refinishing the floor for a bit, that would be great.... Although I do dream about that Plasteak product and would love to put that down in a lighter color. It would certainly...

    Cleaning cabin floor

    I purchased a 1980 Hunter 30 this past fall. Am very excited about it and am anxious to get on board and start some projects. It has been bitter cold up here so I have not been able to do much on her yet as she is in a yard about an hour from me.... One of the first project I need to do is a...

    Who sailed today?

    No sailing today at our marina.... This is a shot of Allan H. Treman Marine State Park in Ithaca, NY today..... In any event, we had fun at the dog park and spent a little time on my "new" boat, under the tarp, dreaming of warmer days to come...

    Restoring a 79 Hunter 30

    Bay hunter, I am about to close on a 1980 Hunter 30... The cushions are in rough shape on the boat I am purchasing and I am seriously considering getting all new cushions. I might be interested in yours. Do you know if your cushions will fit a 1980 H30? Can you let me know what you are...
