Year built 1998  
Location of boat Erie Basin Lake Erie  
The boat is sailed on The Great Lakes  
How the boat is used Weekends and longer  
Normal wind strength 10-15 knots  
Average size of crew 2-4  
Owner bought the boat in 1998  
If the clock could be turned back, would owner buy again? not sure  
Gear that's been added Jennerker  
Structural or complex improvements no  
The boat's best features Cabin layout and in mast and jib roller reefing, walk through swim platform, VHF radio location  
Problem areas in terms of design, materials, maintenance, etc. So far all works very well, freeboard seems to have a effect on causing excessive boat heel  
Sailing characterisitcs The boat is very slow in light winds 8-10 knots  
Motoring characterisitcs Not a problem does about 6 knots at 2200RPM  
Liveability Only the two of us it works very well, has a lot of ventilation.  
The owner's experience in dealing with Hunter (if any) Positive but slow to respond.  
The owner's experience with the boat dealer or broker, if any Dealer was slow to resolve commissioning problems
