Well look what the cat drug in, from California...

Checkin in from California, not a trawler owner, yet.... that's why I am here. Hoping I have come to the correct place to have all my questions answered before leaping into trawler stardom!

In Sacramento, delta area! Looking for a solid boat to motor out to the bay, McCovey Cove and watch a game from the best seats in the house.

Are you looking to buy a boat?

Yes I am in the process. Just looked at a major TLC kha aging spindrift, but it seemed over priced by 20k or so.

Greetings,
Mr. 91. I stand by my assessment from your description of said vessel. Overpriced by $40K.

Well if I end up making the owner an offer all the input from this forum will take effect. I don't want something that I will end up losing big time on.

Before making an offer on any boat you may wish to research the engine make and model. Some of the older Volvo diesels parts apparently are made from unobtainium.

I'll look into it, from what I have heard the volvos are awfully expensive to fix if not impossible. I'll look into it
