Good luck. Looks nice overall. If you get it you need to cover the battery terminals.

Living area looks nice. Unconventional (to me) battery setup in the ER, and is that a layer of dust over everything in the ER? Stand by for anchor insults - or suggestions. Good luck!

No duty as it was previously USCG Documented Vessel. Also, the battery terminals are covered now.

Greetings,
Mr. R. Re: Your ?????. Under "View full specifications" on the YW listing, 4 engines listed and total power is stated as 1480 HP.


Year:1989Length:42'Engine/Fuel Type:4 engines / diesel
I expect this may be a misprint of some sort...

Yes

I noticed that but it was an obvious typo. I saw two engines. Wait the Dink had a motor.

I saw that. 4 Cummins 5.9s Extraordinary. How many were found at inspection? Two,I now see, were found by the OP. Advert unchanged. Is it accurate otherwise?

Here's a very good write up on purchasing a Canadian boat for import to the US. Trawler Forum - View Single Post - Purchasing a Canadian boat for U.S. owner

Don't know why people feel taking a can of spray paint to the engines will improve their appearance. Really crap painting job.

Is hanging your 2nd anchor from the bow rail with the chain flopping against the hull, a sailboater practice?

Most of the boat looks to be in good shape. If your deal goes through, I would spend some time replacing 30 year old hoses. Bet many of them are pretty stiff.

I think 42’ is one of the best of all world sizes. I think that is a lot of boat for $85,000 and if you got it for less great. Doesn’t look like a project boat. 30 year old boats always need something but what else would you do?

Hope she surveys out as nice as the pictures look.

The "mechanic" argument doesn't always mean that everything is going to be 100%.

Correct

Just saying I went over with him the maintenance records/receipts and the dates the services were completed.

It is a 1989 boat. Not going to be 100 percent. If you look at a boat and say you won't buy unless it is 100 percent, you would never buy a boat.
