The 4-1/4"-wide banner stripe is a fixture of 1970s race yachts and deemed essential for Diana (so much that the 'Hunter by Cherubini' sticker was expressly designed to fit inside the stripe). Showing Diana with fine-line tape delineating the stripe and 'curtain' of paper to guard against drips.
Diana's name graphic, as designed by JC2, realized by Night Owl Graphics of Croydon PA. Pic is confusing as neighbor's Chapparal motor boat's arch appears directly beyond! Showing green-painted plywood 'winter cover' replacing foredeck hatch. No; pic is not squashed; the boat really is this sleek!
showing preferred angle for having 5/16" or 8-mm stainless-steel Wichard/West Marine U-bolts bent for installation through factory toerail for use as chainplates for Hunter 25. Copy this; it works great.

showing 'varnish shop', mostly trim pieces of mahogany awaiting reinstallation after varnishing. Cushions are new. These are of 4" 'Lux' 50-lb foam - the best you can get. Custom-cut using electric steak knife (pretty much industry-standard method). Paper roll is for patterns.
My lead line for sounding bottom depths. Marked only at 5' (absolutely lowest water, given calm water); 9' (adequate at low water; given likelihood of swell/surge; 15' (adequate for 7-8-ft tidal change when sounded at any/unknown state of tide). Works great.
Custom two-bulb masthead light assembly by JC2. No-one makes an LED tricolor light for smaller boats; yet this is even more vital on a smaller boat than on a 35- or 40-footer. Red/green/white nav light below all-round anchor light (not the reverse, which makes no sense).
I’ve got a 1980 Hunter 30 Cherubini that I’m doing a steering pedestal overhaul on. As part of this I‘ve removed the two big instrument enclosures on either side of the pedestal that housed broken LCD displays for depth and speed - I can get this info off the Garmin display that will mount on...
I recently acquired a sailboat and noticed a small protrusion about 5x5in, under the starboard side of the hull in front of the keel. I have heard a few things, the one closest is that it is the plug to seal the toilet that is located above in the cabin The original toilet was removed some time...
I have a 1981 Hunter 33 (Cherubini). I need a new set of control cables for the throttle and shifter. Can anyone tell me the correct type and length of cable to purchase, or point me to a resource where I can look it up? Thanks in advance.
