I own a Sundowner 36 1984 vintage. Bought her in 1998. Have taken her from Washington to Alaska and back.

Add me to the list of Sundowner owners I recently took delivery of a 32. I live in New England and have only seen one 30 around

Hi Xsbank,
Just wanted you to know that my new dark teak didnít lighten up to match my light teak. As you can see from the dates itís been well over a year. Since my boat is undercover in a barn about 8-9 months a year that might have had some impact on that. I guess there might be advantages and disadvantages to living in a cold winter climate.

Newbie - Looking for a family vessel to explore the Puget Sound

First time posting, novice in boating.... so be gentle.

I am interested in getting into boating and after 6 years in WA. Long time camper who now feels the pull to explore our Puget Sound / San Juan waters. I have done so in a friends boat, but am contemplating the leap for my family of 4. Ultimately we would like to spend nights away exploring and enjoy our beautiful state.

My wife is very fond of the tug style boats and I happened upon one, which was listed as a 1983 Sundowner. However, all Sundowner's I have seen have a "stepped roof," this one has a long flat one. Seems like a very practical configuration, but was wondering if anyone had experience or history with this configuration.

Any thoughts or insights you have for a hopeful enthusiast, on this boat or any would be appreciated. I dont want to buy our dream boat at this time, but something my family and I can make memories with (camping, exploring, fishing, etc). Thanks again to this community and what you all provide.

Cool Propeller Guard

Looking at a Sundowner 30 which has a cage around the propeller, obviously designed for seaweed or lobster pot lines or whatever, but have never seen this on a trawler before. Seems it would certainly make the prop more inefficient. Anyone seen this before, is it worth it?
