RE: ended out trawler search

I have Perkins too and you are correct, very reliable engine. I would agree with you on that. But they are A totally different engine than the Hino. Operating at the opposite end of the performance spectrum in a 4588. The 4588 Bayliners came out with Hinos and they have less than a stellar record in that hull. Bayliner moved on to the cummins with much better success. My mechanic has worked on many of these boats and why I asked him to look at this boat with me. At the price they were asking it looked like a great deal but he took a quick look at the engines and said they are original Hinos and you might as well plan on repowering it if you buy this boat. Like you he also said their parts are very expensive and they are too small for the application. Now if you want to do trawler speed they would probably be fine. The boat is in excellent condition, but with those engines it's not an easy sell!

RE: ended out trawler search

My boat never had Hino engines. It came with 330 cummins*from the factory. It did not come from Bananna belt.

Nothing wrong with the Hino engines except that they're getting more difficult to find parts for.

The size of the engine you need in this or any hull depends on what you want to do with it. When we made the re-power decision I seriously considered going with a pair of Naturally Aspirated cummins engines, and sticking with displacement speeds.

It was a short consideration though. The 330's will allow for a 15 knot cruise if I want or need the speed. I don't see myself cruising at that speed though. Putting along at displacement speeds will be just fine. I'll run up on plane occasionally just to*put some load on the engines once in awhile.

ended out trawler search

These are from the listing. My photos are not of the same quality.

These boats have allot of room for a 47 footer. Enough teak to be nautical, but not so much as to make it dark inside.

Fuel capacity is 440 gal, water 200 gal, waste 40+ gal. Vaccuflush, generator, 840 AH battery bank, inverter, 750 lb cap davit for the skiff, washer/dryer, icemaker, flybridge fridge & sink, *etc...

We're pulling the large holding tank and adding a Raritan hold-n-treat, and are adding diesel heat. We're also adding a KVH V3 sat com system for telephone anf internet access.

For electronics I pulled the Furuno Vx2 navnet system off of our old boat. 4Kw 48 NM open array, two 10" displays, redundant gps sensors gyro, and redundant chart chips. I'll be adding a second sounder module for redundancy, and have already put in redunant transducers. I'll probably add a third display to the network so we can dedicate one display for each major function.

On the new engines we're putting in Atena digital tachs, boost, pyro gauges, and it already has floscan fuel computers.

All this will be done by the last week in October when I sign off on the work and put the boat away for the winter. Our trip home to Alaska will be late April.

Wow. A Command Center indeed. I wonder if I could fit one of those in my Pilothouse.

*Well, the Bayliner Command Bridge wouldn't fit into my pilothouse, but it fit perfectly into Eric's boat. *Want no more.

RE: ended out trawler search

Well that was quite some marriage hustler. I almost missed it and then I thought hey that's my GPS and my sounder and and. And then BAM in my face there's my chair w the wood elevator Pieces. Chris and I had a howling snicker over that. I wrote on another thread "things aren't always as they seem" and it came around and got me! Thanks ..that was fun.

That's a pretty cool trick, Healhustler, but you covered up Eric's 'Willy Hole' under his wheel.

RE: ended out trawler search

That hole where Walt's imagination is and where my original helm location was is scheduled for an upgrade. Planed to cover that whole area w teak boards that I already have but there's always something more important to do. AND I like the light cream plastic area bringing contrast to all the other teak. So I'll prolly cover up the hole only with ........something.

Don't entertain Walt's imagination, Eric (although if it was me, I'd be pointing out the size of the hole). *About the seat, there's just some things about a seat that makes it right. *When it's right, don't fool with it. *Those 2X4s could be elegantly finished with brass ends affixed.
