43' Marine Trader Tradewinds Trawler
I looked at several TW 43-44's during the last year. Some were*pretty good*some were not so hot.*The TW's*were built in Taiwan at the*Lien Hwa*Boat yard for Marine Trader. Most of them had solid FG hulls and cored decks.*Almost all*of the boats that I looked at had some degree water damage to the wood or veneer interior walls from leakage around the windows, which was fairly common in the Taiwan boats of that time. *
I was about to have*a TW 44*surveyed when*a boat with a better configuration for me (Chung Hwa 46 LRC) came on the market, which I just purchased.
I dont' know what your price range is, but you should be able to get one at a fairly decent price.* *
If you have a specific*TW that you are interested in, let me know, chances are I've already done some homework on it.************ KJ
