A good friend of mine bought a new 23 Sea hunt in 2003. We fished it pretty good for 3 seasons and it held up pretty well. Early last season we noticed some stress cracks in the gel-coat. Nothing serious or structural but it was under warranty. So he put her in the shop after contacting Sea hunt for warranty repair. They've had it for a few months and just last week they called to say they put a completely new upper half on the boat. It sounds like a pretty good deal. I mean having a new upper half is almost like getting a new boat right? It also sounds like they are standing behing thier product, but is it good for the boat to be re-decked as far as structural integrity?
