I'll try to keep this short.
While others would disagree, the 260 is a great boat for its intended purpose.
But, I saw room for improvement.
this will likely be a few adds to topic.
Position of the cooler is silly. Seating in the salon is overkill.
I re positioned the cooler for a more accessible arrangement. I also added a dry food drawer below the new cooler position. makes use of otherwise "Pain in the bum to access storage"

Good ideas which I ask you put under boatinfo/Hunter/260/owner modifications

I insisted wheel steering be made an option as it was not offered on the 26 , improvement of forward hatch, better dive platform and stern rail seats. I was a proponent of the water ballast only as I felt the 270 wing keel would not sell well as it did not last as long as the 260! Thank goodness Luhrs listened.

Ideas like yours are great. Thank you both for advising and pictures help. Have a great day Who was the greatest generation?

BRAVO!

What did you do with the old cooler space?
