re: Trawler Wanted

Gin,* The boat is of interest to you,and *if you and your family are just going to hangout on it in LI, and you honestly realize you will probably have to donate it to dispose of it, than it kind of makes sense.* In*the senseless way all boats make sense.

Is there anyplace you can put it on a mooring and really "live simply" for the Season?

re: Trawler Wanted

I have a mooring permit in Mt.Sinai Harbor for my Rinker 270. I would have to sell my 250lb mushroom and 3/4" chain and 18" buoy for the proper set up for 20,000 lbs. Love this harbor except for the birds!! Nothing I do keeps them off my boat and having a larger boat would be a nice pooping ground for them.. . . ... .. ugggggg

I don't know ....

The choice is as close as your favorite junk yard.

As cars are designed to fold up , they are scrapped rather than repaired after a bender.

MY choice would be a Honda , as they still use timing CHAIN , instead of a belt to spin the cam shaft.

At 30 to 70 HP they should run 14 HP per gallon , and easily run 3000 hours.

A real (not old fork lift ) tranny like a Twin Disc would require a modified bell housing and built up torque plate.

Keel cooling and dry stack would be least expensive and allow all weather easy operation.
