Congrats because you are the 1,000 reason for my post and I am so glad because you were the owner of a Hunter Sail Boat and so was I. I bought a 25 Hunter back in 1982 for our racing club in Knoxville which was Concord Yacht Club. I single handed my 25 every year. We raced every Sunday and I am pleased to report that the best I ever did with my heavy boat was come in last.
Regardless, I taught myself to sail. I use to go every morning on the embayment of the Tennessee river and single handed, take my boat and sail around the boats on anchor.
I taught myself how to sail and became very good on the weird air of inland sailing[8D]
Happy 1000 posting Paul E. Smith
