Re: Trawler wanted

Might also check with municipalities that are close to the water & having an abandoned boat issue. Lots of time they will simply bid them out to get them removed.

There is a 60' Hatteras stuck in the marshes of the Trent River if you want to drag it out and disappear into the night with it :-D

Re: Trawler wanted

Ha, he called ya'll rich ass holes!! I needed that this morning. There was a lugger that sold here in Biloxi for less then 10k that was in running order, genset, ac and people were living on it. It needed lots of TLC but your not to far off on your estimate to get a project. My only advice would be to hold off on the name calling until you at least give this forum two days to respond and increase your 2k to 5k or 10k. Bigger bait bigger fish. There is someone who wants to sell there heap and 10k sounds good. You go look at it and offer the guy 2k. No harm no foul and you will probably get it. It's called tire kicking. Good luck.

Re: Trawler wanted

buy a chart and look for the little symbols that look like a boat .If you go to the dollar store and buy an industrial bag of party balloons and start blowing,you get enough to get it to the surface.$20 dollars for the chart,fifty dollars for the balloons.there you go,seventy bucks for your liveaboard-problem solved!

Re: Trawler wanted

IF a trailerable (just ) trawler 28-30 ft will do, a neighbor has a nice GRP boat with a new diesel engine mostly installed.

About $10K will get a boat for the Loop, Bahamas or other normal TT , Bayliner cruising.

Trawler wanted

Morgan, I found mine @ a local marina. I too wanted to put her in the backyard to fix up, but she was WAY too heavy and the cost was ridiculous to have her hauled!! I am keeping her at the marina covered while I fix her up. Slip fees at marina are VERY reasonable ($200 mo). I first was looking at a 48' Nautaline the marina was giving away to avoid disposal fees. The previous owner was several months behind on slip fees and titled it over to marina!! They just wanted it gone. That one needed too much in my opinion, ALL systems were in failure due to lack of winterization and lots of wood rot to transom, stringers, floors, walls, etc. But, while I was looking, one of the liveaboards turned me on to a better prospect at a great price that needed very little work. I was able to buy a 36' Uniflite Sport Sedan with operable crusader engines for $3500. Prior owner had fallen on hard times (financial and health) and needed to get out from under it quick! I will probably put another $2000 into it replacing some broken windows, batteries, a liitle rotten interior wood, and interior updating. But I'm grinning from ear to ear as I thought this would only be possible maybe when I retired!! Good Luck, Jim

Wow, the new guy (just got my log in today) has to come in and point out the most obvious place the look? Check the charities and the colleges/sailing centers. A 42' Taiwanese trawler (sorry didn't catch the builder) sold for $800.00 at the Orange Coast College auction a while back. I was looking for sails at the time (found a brand new North 3D for $200). As I was leaving I walked past the guy who had bought the boat (on the hard) talking to his wife on his cell phone "..but honey it was only $800!" Classic. My friend and I laughed all the way to the car.

This is more than you want to spend... but it is in better condition than you need.

Check out the Long Beach Sailing Center. They have a GB36 in great shape for $19K. www.ussclb.org

There are inexpensive boats out there if you have the time to find them and fix them.

Well, if he does there is a 30' Taiwanese trawler (not sure what kind, but does it matter?) on Craigslist in Escalon, CA near Stockton for $4000.

Next.

Beeslbub nailed it, try the backwater marinas. Years ago when boating near St Louis there were many pretty decent vessels, albeit without a few things, that were give aways.

According to the DC government tax sleuths I am rich because I pay taxes to support the 50% who do not. Plus, according to my "friends' I am an A hole so Morgan has at least me pegged.

Who says we need ODTE?
