Marine Trader 38 (Trunk)

Hell out there!! I'm a "newby" at this, so cut me some slack line -eh? We are looking at 4 or 5 trawlers between MD and Nova Scotia. (We live in NS) One vessle up here is a 38MT Trunk. She's had a GREAT LOT of rot replacement, Flying bridge deck, Lower deck, Cabin sides, and so on. The present owner is very particular so I have confidence (I think) in the finished product. I don't know yet about the fuel tanks or the steering system. She has a single 165 Volve. Question; What are the pit-falls I ought to be on the watch for is these vessels?

I am not sure why, it opened no problem when I just tried it! Try searching for a Cape Classic Diesel Trawler on kijji NS.

Maybe this way will work!!

Agree Rick.. Really nice!

My wife works in a Dr.'s office and had to give a couple the TwinRex shots a couple of weeks ago so they could go to visit their daughter who works on the Athena. She said that they had some nice pictures that their daughter sent them.

Haha Carey now wouldn't that be nice... what a dream ah?*
