Nice boat. I have the almost identical model - same year, etc, but mine did not have the extended hard-top upper deck, so we achieved similar with frame and Sunbrella canvas.

At that price, that is a really great buy for someone getting into the trawler-style action.

Now this is value. With the Ford Lehman being a positive and if the decks were done correctly another positive what is not to like about the rest of this boat. What a great weekend family cruiser.

Looking forward to interior pics.

Thanks for the kind words. We installed the hardtop removing as much weight from it as we could by pulling the radio box. It provides nice protection from the Florida sun and sits at the right height to provide shade while handling the boat.

It has been a great boat for us but the time has come to move on to our next adventure. I don't necessarily want to see her go, but she will server the next owner kindly.

Nice MT. What's the bridge clearance with the fixed hard top?

rbeitz, thanks! I just went out and measured height as I know the importance for clearance and the radar arch which supports the hardtop is right at 15.5'. The hardtop sits under the radar arch. There is a permanent mount TV antenna that adds another 1.5' landing you at 17' clearance with VHF antennas folded down. If you need to be under the 17' for total clearance, there are the TV antenna and radar dome that would need to be removed or remounted.

Thanks for your interest.

You should have recv'd a link from my google drive to view the pictures I have. Let me know if you didn't get it.

If you like what you see, I can share my number outside of the forum to discuss any questions you may have.

Trey, I have shared with you a link to my google drive that houses pictures giving a good representation of the trawler. Let me know if you did not get it.

78-Puget, thanks for the complement. The recon prop has provided cruising speed at less RPMs so I'm hoping to see an even further improvement in fuel economy.

Would like to request additional pics.

Greetings. I am interested in learning more about the condition of your MV. Perhaps by possibly forwarding interior pics, engine, bilge, etc.

I am newly signed onto this forum and am searching for an occasional live aboard trawler.

Dear badu11, I tried to send you a pm, however, the forum would not let me. I am in the market for a trawler under 50k. Could you send me the link to your pictures? My email address is haw1961@live.com
