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).
Hey friends. I'm at a bit of a crossroads. I'd like to do some coastal cruising, make a trip to the Bahamas, and spend some time living aboard and adding a +1 at some point. I have a Hunter Cherubini 25 with 8hp outboard in a TX lake slip. Most of what I hear is that an inboard diesel is...
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 am looking for feedback on a boat I am looking to purchase tomorrow. She is a 1978 hunter 25 in fairly good condition. Specifics;
No soft spots or blisters
Servicable main and jib
Bow and stern rails intact
Interior needs some tlc and re-cushion
Boat is dry, bilge dry
Has anyone ever successfully documented a Hunter 25? By my understanding the '5-ton' requirement is achievable in that the USCG always considers a vessel as able to be loaded to within a fraction of an inch of being swamped, in calm weather (it's a theoretical thing). The H25 displaces between...
