I just purchased a 2006 Hunter 38. Moving up from a Catalina 30. I had a Catalina 22 prior to the Cat 30. Lot's of first with this boat. First fractional B&R rig. First furling mainsail. The Admiral said she wanted a bigger boat so who am I to argue? I have found this site to be a great resource and look forward to some good discussions! Happy New Year!
