When I get this generator fixed. "All" I have to do is slide it off except it ain't sliding. I will try again in the morning. Realistically, first week of August.

Sounds GREAT! And I'll be sure to find a way to be in town while you're there! Any idea where you'll be staying?

Kevin, I figured if I got up enough speed, there would be room for the two of us in your slip .
Not sure, we (Michelle) will be checking a few places out. Choice kind of depends on whether we bring a vehicle down or not.

Interesting comment. Years ago, my best friend purchased a 4588 that he lived on. I had the opportunity to make a few offshore cruises on the boat and was amazed how well it handled the sea. (I was a "doubter" prior to these few outings.) He then told me that the 4588 was the first boat that he knew of that was completely designed by CAD. I have no way of confirming this but the boat has some really unbelievable design features for a 45 ft cruiser. I have a friend who just sold his sail boat and wants a "trawler" to live aboard. I've suggested looking for a 4588-4788 but like me (years ago) he has doubts about "Bayliners." It's really too bad as he has $200K to spend and probably could find a nice one!

Walt, I was not a 'believer' either but did a lot of research before buying. If your friend wants a chat, I would be happy to provide a number. Pilot house King (TF member) has an awesome site with the history of these boats. Kevin is of course, another wonderful resource.

That'll work Blue! I'm nosed into the slip, so if you back in really really fast, should fit nicely, and no need for dumb ole mooring lines!
