    1st Post... 1st Large (to me) Sailboat... Hunter 28.5 or Hunter 33

    To answer your question and not pontificate and offer advice you did not ask for, the Hunter 28.5 was the bast boat Hunter ever made. Modified this boat had cruised around the world literally. It has no known design flaws that are intrensic. Using it as a cruiser though you will want to...

    Times Up?

    When either they pry my cold dead hands off the tiller or I lose interest, which ever comes first...

    No emergency tiller... but then again... no emergency... yet!

    Bulkhead location 1993 Hunter 335

    A qualified marine surveyor can probably advise you the best. They are not free, they too must earn a living, but usually it is good.

    Hunter 28.5 ... my boat... my future home... my project

    Are you in California? Jeff

    Sounds like a rental or time share and this means your boat would be engaged in commercial activities, whether you make a profit is irrelevant. . The federal government has specific regulations on required equipment, documentation, insurance and liability for this. The insurance policy is...

    Hunter 28.5 ... my boat... my future home... my project

    Love my 28.5 have spent weeks aboard. Just remember you have room for few personal possessions but what the heck. It's like having a cabin on the water, without any grass to mow.

    Looking for a Former Hunter Employee

    Hi Pat, For my own knowledge I would like to ask, WHY do you need this? Oops, never mind I see that you want to register it commercially. I'm just curious what commercial operations are you going to do? What part of the country are you in?

    Hunter 28.5 Side Windows/Front Hatch

    Sure, I just installed my new side windows (ports) this last summer in my Hunter 28.5 "Amazing Grace". Bought the kit, and it came with almost everything I needed. The items it did not have in the kit were things I easily picked up from Lowe's or Home Depot. There were clear instructions...

    Rerun missing halyards

    With the mast down, I have rented scaffolding for a weekend from a local rental shop for almost nothing and set it up my self. (if you have them transport it and set it up for you is costs more money). If that's not in the budget, being careful, a couple ladders have worked for me in the past...

    Serious Repair Question

    What?!? You saying hunters can't take a 45 degree heel? Hmmm, I think that's not correct. we should NEVER insult someone's boat on this forum and tell them to buy a new boat. Although I would never sustain a 45 degree heal because I and most importantly my "significant other" in my life...

    Hunter resource documents archive now online

    Hi, I noticed that there is virtually no information on one of hunters most popular boats, the H28.5. I have my original manual and some other documents. Who (or what email address) can I contact to offer to scan to PDF my manual to contribute to this documentation effort?

    odd request: battery case

    Right now there is a hummingbird VHF5 on eBay for about 20 bucks. Perhaps it has the battery box you need. Take a look.
