General condition and any additional information

1983 Hunter 33 (c) SERIOUSLY for sale. Located in Forked River NJ on Barnegat Bay. Extensively improved over 20 years of ownership. Some of you will remember me as a frequent contributor of information concerning the Hunter 33 and this boat in particular. Id guess much of my old info concerning this boat and the H 33 in general is still available in the archives. Time moves on, and Im not getting any younger. It has been sitting on its trailer (Yes, trailer) in my yard for about 7 years. Ive finally admitted that its very, highly, extremely unlikely that I will ever get it back in the water. Time for a new Curator to take over.

Ive spent un-told thousands of dollars and who knows how many hundreds of hours laboring away on this thing. A list of the stuff I can remember follows below. To put it simply, if he doesnt act like a jerk, the guy that wants this boat could end up with a phenominal deal.

Now for the record; I have a guy who wants the bare hull for a project that will happen just after the new year and is willing to assist me in parting out the entire boat. I would rather see it go to a new owner. So I am interested in any and all realistic offers, trades, swaps. If you frequent this site you have a good idea what all of this is worth. Im interested in a 23 to 26 foot trailerable sail boat. I might even consider a Hunter. Call me. Tempt me. Im easy, but not stupid. I can offer assistance, information and endless advice in prepping and transporting the boat to the water about 2 easy blocks away.

Call me. Talk to me.
