    Hunter 34 deck non skid needs painting

    Whats the name of that specific synthetic teak product? I've seen many, and gotten samples of Lonseal before, but in hand it looks very "fake". The picture you shows looks way less like a roll of plastic.

    H34 Compression Post

    I did not tie my post into the side beams directly other than the thickened epoxy used to install my block. I did have some rot in the middle of my beam so I chiseled it out and used thickened epoxy to permanently install a block of 6061 Aluminum which was drilled and tapped to accept my new...

    BUYING! H34! (my boat thread)

    Exactly! The previous owner of my boat decided to throw the port tank and the holding tank out because he was too wimpy to clean them from the owner before him. So he put in a way too small holding tank, and never replaced the port water tank, I still have the aft tank at least. I've thought of...

    Repairing Hunter 40 damage from Hurricane Matthew

    Mind giving us amateurs a lesson? What paint did you use and how much did you thin it? I've used perfection and if I didn't thin it, it was impossible and still hard not to get orange peel even with thinning it 10%. I guess thats why you did wet sanding between coats eh?

    Hunter 34 deck non skid needs painting

    We did Total Boat Total Tread in light gray. I don't have experience with any other non-skids though. It went on well, 2 coats, and has been very durable except where my wife accidentally hit it with the orbital when working on another project - at least its easy to touch up. We only scuffed...

    Thru Hull Backers

    Best material for backing plate is G10 or a comparable solid fiberglass layup using epoxy.

    Midship cleat on toe rail?

    The original post wasn't asking for permanent docking midship cleats. Their purpose is to aid in docking, before you setup your permanent mooring lines. However I will say I motor against mine during docking solo with my 12,000-13,000 lbs H34 and have yet to have a problem or concern doing it...

    Midship cleat on toe rail?

    Garhauer track cleat that goes on the jib track. Really reasonable price, amazing quality and does what you need and can be moved at the start of your sail easily to accomodate jib car movement.

    H34 rig tension

    I can't speak to my forestay since its got furling extrusion around it, but was your rig upsized at some point? The split portion of my backstays are 1/4" and my shrouds V1 and V2 are 1/4". My D1 is 9/32.

    Hanging Bimini

    It would definitely be cool to do this on a Hunter 34, but Laura's boat had the advantage of having a mizzen mast and rigging to pull this off. We have good backstays but without a dodger setup how would you rig the forward end to suspend correctly?

    Hanging Bimini

    Sailor832, how did you attach yours to the rail? The pic you showed of the online ad says it is only 103" wide. My measurements to from rail to rail like it shows attached in your second pic is about 110". Did you just stretch the metal until it reached each side?

    wing on wing sailing

    There are many instances some ending in death that say otherwise to the attachment point. Preventers really should be rigged to the end of the boom and go all the way to the bow. See the attached pdf link for one example of the Platino accidental gybe that was rigged with a preventer that...

    BUYING! H34! (my boat thread)

    You made it much funnier than I would have - I had to stop myself from telling the poster blackmail is a bad look - I guess its effective though?:huh::facepalm:

    Rig Shimmy

    Saturday I did more investigating and started rig tuning. I started by measuring out the prebend using my main halyard tied off and pulled as tight as possible to the base of the mast. While I didn't climb to measure by eyeball it is 5-6" of pre-bend. Then measured rake using a 7 lb hammer as...

    Hunter 34 Chainplate Anchor help

    Its not a bad idea and I wish you luck, my only advice would be to get your u channel beam first and cut the same size hole in a scrap piece of plywood first before you go cutting into the boat. The hull rides very close to this area so its not necessarily the size of the hole either but the...
