Hey gang,

My name is Mike and I'm from the DC metro area. I currently own a Sea Ray Sundancer but I'm actively looking for a trawler. I've looked at Grand Banks, Albin's, Marine Traders and more. I love the Grand Banks but they are a tad out of my price range. I'm looking to spend no more than about $100k on something under 40 ft.

I recently found this one listed at a marina not too far me.

However, I don't know anything about foreign built boats. It does have twin Cummins 150 HP's in it. The owner just told me that they are going to be replacing it with Twin 155's (remanned) since the port motor is experiencing some blow by. He said he'd rather just do both of them and give the new owner a 2 year warranty from Cummins with the replacement motors.

As for me... I'm a USCG OUPV captain. I'm currently in class for my 50 ton masters upgrade which I should have by February. I just got back from*my first*ICW trip from Goose Bay Marina on the Potomac River to Marco Island Florida aboard my buddy's 43 ft'er. That was*a blast and I can't wait to do it again in something like this style of boat.

Anyways... just wanted to get some feed back on Kha Shing and see what others had to say about them....
