I think it is a great idea. I know I asked several times questions that I found later on had already been answered previously, yet you all took time to guide me. I also found the owners mods file very helpful. ( I am in the process of building a new anchor roller as shown in the mods file). It should be required reading for all newbies.

Well, if we can keep this site up and going

I know I used to visit this site lots to get ideas and upload my revelations, but I got busy with other stuff and when I came back, it had been put on hold and I don't remember if it was because of no moderator or because of a 'site rewrite'? There's lots of things that all of us are learning and it sure would be cool to have a place to share all of this, huh?
I'm enjoying a renewed motivation to share here mainly because I'm completed some cool projects and I wanna show off what I've done. More pics and specs to come from me. I encourage others to keep up the good work at submitting threads and pics. Thanks, I've enjoyed them and they've been useful.

Jose Guidera (Guidera48) is too modest! He's done a fantastic job of restoring his '79 and documenting what's been done with plenty of photos and explanations. For the 37c Hunter owner, it is a knowledge base in itself. Thanks to all the Hunter owners for the knowledge base and information that this "Newbie" finds essential! -Greg Olausen, owner of '82 37c

Although I no longer have the boat, I thought some other owners might find this description of my fix for the 'water on the galley floor mystery' useful. It was one of the last fixes I did to the boat before she was lost in Hurricane Dorian. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

Thanks Jim.. The boat is new to me and that water is driving me crazy.
