    How To Post Photos & Effective Use of Links

    Options for the new Hunter 38?

    Does anyone know where we can find the prices for Options that are available as factory or dealer installation on the new Hunter 38? They are not on the Hunter web site and we don't want to get involved with a dealer yet.

    Plastic hardware for pleated curtains

    We have pleated curtains on our 1987 Hunter 31 that I think are original. We need to find the plastic buttons that hang the curtains. Does anyone know a source for those or has anyone changed to a different curtain and have the old ones still? Thanks. Marybeth & Rip Dulcinea II
