General condition and any additional information

Having owned and raced this boat for 20 years my wifes health doesnt allow her to enjoy and has a very hard time getting around on it. This to me is one of the best series of boat that Hunter ever built. I have always done my own work on it and maintain it to a high standard. The boat is a great cruiser / racer and has won more than its share of races. Very solid and Dependable boat that could be sailed any ware. Its always been on Lake Michigan a freshwater lake. In 2017 we lost the mast and all the standing and most of the running gear, almost everything from the deck up was new 2018. US Spars put a complete package together to re-rig the boat. On her first race she won it. It has a new 150 % Quantum Head sail, new Quantum Main with jack lines, inventory includes several spinnakers, head sails and a staysail.
