Gulfstar trawler

I am the captain of the Periwinkle. She is a 1975 36 ft gulfstar trawler. I like the old girl but want to know more about what she is made of and possible solutions to problems old vessels are plagued with. Is the an active or soon to be active gulfstar club and primarily trawlers.

Happily Its my understanding the old Gulf boats the were solid glass construction.

So you can ignore all the TT posts of replacing decks , PH, caused by Chinese Composite.

All machinery eventually wears out , so match your bilge pump, FW pump and carry the spares on board.

Eventually you may wish to replace water hoses , fuel lines (if rubber , not metal) and the rubbers inopening ports and hatches.

Enjoy a usually easy boat to maintain! You can go cruising instead of boat repairing.
