    Baby stays Hunter 23

    Over the past several years I have slowly perfected my mast raising system. The last thing to do is to rig baby stays to keep the mast from swaying until the shrouds tighten. Can anyone send me a description or pictures of baby stay installation on your Hunter 23?? I know that the attachment...

    Acrylic slider over companionway

    I'm betting that this topic has been discussed before but my search has not turned anything up that is specific to my Hunter 23. In short, my acrylic slider has cracked and I am wondering what others have done with this issue. The Hunter store wants over $325 to purchase new plus $125 in...

This space is almost impossible to use unless you actually crawl into the port side access locker. Has anyone figured out a...

    Opening Portlights

    In the spring I need to replace both of the windows in my 1985 Hunter 23. I was thinking that a nice addition would be opening port lights set into the lexan windows. However, I can not find an opening port light that is less than 8" in diameter. The width of the hull window opening is around...

    Cruising without the mast

    Just wondering if anyone has done any inland waters cruising in a Hunter 23 without the mast. I would like to try it for a weekend but not if it is going to be a horrible experience in terms of boat motion.

    Headstay modification

    Thinking about a roller furler for next season. The CDI FF2 furler instructions indicate that there must be a toggle at both ends of the forestay. On my 1985 Hunter 23 there is a rather peculiar upper end attachment point that consists of a slot into which and sort of ball shaped end of the...

    On my 1985 Hunter 23 (maybe on all Hunters of that period) there is a wooden bulkhead just aft of where the cooler slides under the forward portion of the cockpit. The area behind the bulkhead opens into the under cockpit storage area. It looks like it might be a good place for the permanent...

    Trailer Manufacturer

    I have a galvanized trailer under my H23 and although the name is barely visible , it appears that the trailer was manufactured by Lawrence. Can anyone confirm that is, indeed the builder of the trailer. I suspect they are out of business as I can't find them on the web.
