Hello all!!!
Been lurking in the backgrounds on this site for quite some time. Thought I should officially join!
Bought a 77' Uniflite 36' Aft cabin a couple years ago. 3rd owner, prior owner took amazing care of it. Even upgraded the gas engines to 3208 NA diesels. I've done MANY updates/upgrades myself, bow and stern thrusters being the biggest. Installed them myself (finance calls them our "relationship savers"). Also installed SeaDeck flooring bow-to-stern. Looks amazing!!!
Looking at upgrading to something a bit larger, 48' is on the radar...

Welcome aboard from a fellow Washingtonian.

You are braver then me. Not sure I could handle punching holes below the waterline. I love the look of the SeaDeck flooring. Nice upgrade!

I went with Side-shift thrusters. VERY easy install. Took me about a weekend (long days) to get them both mounted. It was actually harder and more time consuming running all the FAT power cables needed!!!

Welcome aboard. I put in a stern thruster 2 years ago myself. Took 2 days to do the install. Had to cut an 8” hole in the transom. Measured about 10 times and cut once. Love it.

Welcome aboard from a fellow Seattleite.

I too added the Side Shift Stern thrusters on. had to put dual 350's as we are 70k lbs but works like a charm!

Welcome aboard.

A uniflite 36 with twin cat 3208’s. I bet you can cruise at 20 kts and only burn a gallon a mile. What a great PNW boat. I had a uniflite 42 for along time always wished she had a pair of 3208ta’s probably would still have her if she did.

Welcome from another Washingtonian. How about sharing some pics of the interior of the boat, and you and your crew using her?
