Owners' reviews of the Hunter 20 and the Downeaster 38

We are looking for input from current and former owners of Hunter 20s and Downeaster 38s for upcoming boat reviews. Do you own, or have you owned, one of these boats? Perhaps you know someone who owns or has owned one? (If so, please forward this message!)

Please send your comments to Dan Spurr at: by September 28.

Specifically, Dan wants to know about:

  • sailing characteristics (good and bad)
  • level of quality in the build
  • what you like most about the boat
  • what you like least about the boat
  • specific problems you and others have had with this boat, like a leaky hull/deck joint
  • advice you would give to someone considering buying this boat

Thanks for sharing your experience with "the rest of us," we're eager to hear from you!

And if neither of these are boats you've sailed in the past, please stay tuned for future messages. We're bound to review a boat you own or once owned.

The crew at Good Old Boat
