    Stern light

    Was the design of the Hunter 23.5 intended to drag the motor when sailing at night? If I raise the motor it blocks the light. This is with a factory motor attached to the factory mount.

    Spinnaker versus asymmetrical

    Hunter 23.5 owner's manual says you can fly a Spinnaker. Wondering if there's more stress on the rigging flying a asymmetrical Spinnaker. No back stay on these boats. So if it can handle a Spinnaker can it handle an asymmetrical Spinnaker?
