    san juan 34

    I just bought a San Juan 34. She has great bones, but the interior is a little spartan. Looking for a salon table and some cupboards for above the galley. Also the Cabinetry around the head has been removed. Any help on sourcing these items would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Holding Tank Blues

    I have a Hunter 326 and had the idea that I could remove and repair my holding tank when a leak developed. I can assure you that the boat was built around the holding tank. It is not coming out through the cabin. Its plastic so I cut mine into pieces and removed it (hold your breath) and had a...

    Beneteau First 30 Performance

    Thanks for biting; I had a sail on the First 30 and it really is a great boat. Very well laid out for short handed sailing, fun and pretty darn quick. But the feedback is conclusive and it definately doesn't sail to its IRC rating. Too bad really, because I plan to enter a few IRC races. Im...

    Beneteau First 30 Performance

    Does anyone know much about the new First 30. I have been looking at one but have heard rumours that they do not sail to their IRC or PHRF ratings. There is one in our local fleet that has really been putting in dissapointing results. Any feedback would be helpful.

    H326 Holding Tank

    Hi Guys, I recently replaced the holding tank on my 2003 Hunter 326. It has come time to wire up the indicator gauge (a unit that also doubles as a gauge for the fresh water) and it seems hunter have not used a simple coloured wire system. They in fact have numbered the wires and I am stuck...

    Hunter 326-Bent Wing on Keel

    Thanks for the input. I know the wings are small, but the bent wing does make a difference. I guess I can try the sledge hammer approach. Worse case, it breaks off, I cut off the other one and even it out. Maybe I could take them off, melt them into a bulb shape and bolt them to the bottom...

    Hunter 326-Bent Wing on Keel

    As you can see in my attachments, the port side wing on my keel has been bent from an impact. It is a lead keel and was manufactured locally, but after conferring with the maker I was stunned at the sticker price for the repair. I would also have to remove the keel and have it refitted...

    Hunter 326 Jib/Tracks Modification? Help

    I have decided to mount some Lewmar ST 30's on the coamings and go with an Assymetrical for downwind. I also have the sailmaker building a new 110% jib, a much better cut. Definately not able to go with a bigger foresail and the addition on new tracks/cars doesnt make sense. Thanks for all...

    Anyone Added Deck Jib Cars to Hunter 326?

    Thanks for the info. I suspected a larger headsail may not work and would be interferred with by the spreaders.

    Hunter 326 Jib/Tracks Modification? Help

    Thanks Steve, great info. I would love further info though, pics would be great. I was concerned that a sail the size of a 155% would get interferred with by the spreaders? I was thinking along the lines of a 135% that I could still sheet between the shrouds, although I am not sure.

    Hunter 326 Jib/Tracks Modification? Help

    I just purchased a 2003 Hunter 326. I find that the short jib tracks mounted on the coachroof are a bit of a pain when I single hand (something I do often in the short handed series) because I have to sheet the jib off the winches mounted either side of the companionway. I also dislike the tiny...
