36 Marine Trader Sedan 1975

Does anyone here know anything about this model and year 1975. Are the cabin walls plywood with FG over? Decks?

At that age most likely. Don't discount it because of construction. Check the condition and go from there.

Chain steering is very reliable. No posts ever on hydraulic fluid leaks. Ever.

And lower priced wheel auto pilots are snap to install and cruise with.

Yes, the walls are fiberglass covered plywood. In other words problems. You will have to move up to about 1980 model to get a molded deck house. I owned a 1981 MT 38 Sedan for several years. It was a very good boat.
