Compare it to the usual TT in need of months or years of rebuilding ,

and you will understand when new folks say "I want a trawler ",

I always ask WHY?

Bertram I believe is a quality build and a glass hull of that vintage must be really thick.

You can't really tell from the pics, but it doe's not look like its been trashed by some DYI guy.

Tony,* I thought of this as a huge liveaboard looper for your family.

FF,* Your right this probably would not have the TT window and deck problems.

It looks like for 35K you could actually buy it and move it on its own power.

There are LOADS of boats like this , but folks think "trawler" instead of actually analizing their needs and desirements.

A boat like this could be a ZERO $$$ Round Trip with ease.

Where are all the newbies, wanting a big looper for nothing?

I put up a prime example and all is quiet.

Are things that bad even the dreamers can't dream.
