This could have potential

I saw this on Ebay. 32' long and though the pictures are lacking it seems to have a nice galley, ER & stateroom. I wonder what the head layout is. I wish it was closer...

I liked this boat when it was for sale a while back . The spiral staircase is a little goofy but I like the rest of the boat .

I took these photos a couple of years ago when the boat was in Indiantown, FL. Looks like it may be the same boat. It had charm, and looked like a pretty capable boat. The owner just had extensive re-plating and fabricating in the rudder area, according to the Yard Manager.

Greetings,
Mr. HH. Potential indeed! Nice-thanks. Only thing is...a couple of pictures seem to have some sort of structure forward of the wheelhouse. Same boat possibly. Long term improvement project for the current owner perhaps?

I am in the process of picking up this boat. It needs a lot of work. I don't see getting it on the water for a year or better. There are 10 to 15 places that need to be patched. The electrical is a mess. I couldn't get power anywhere. Looking like the engine is locked up. A major cleaning will make my wife feel better.
Biggest problem is getting it across the state on a trailer. Without cutting the wheel house off I cannot see under 15'

Thanks you are the first person to express any interest in the progress of the boat. It is still on the west side of Michigan. I am closer to Port Huron. My help to load it is still in Florida.

Too bad it isnít running, because I would run it around rather than trucking it. I really donít like taking a boat apart to truck it. Oh well...

I feel the same way. The advantage of trucking is that I have it on my own trailer. I bring it to my house. If I have 2 hours I can just go out in my yard and work on it.

Someone move Port Huron? Last time I was there, it was on the east coast of Michigan.

Or did you mean, the boat is on the west coast of MI and you are on the east coast of MI? <TEASE>

The URL is;

Still not enough information. Gen, capacity of fuel and water, A/C?
Well, if MI weren't so cold in the winter, you could rewire the boat in a couple of months.
I would start with new batteries and see what 'lights up'.

What a cool boat you will have when you are done. Good luck with your project and we all look forward to seeing the boat on the water.

Looks like a 13ft B. Whaler with an 18 outboard might tow it closer to home and a couple of push poles to lift wires might work?

Yup, gotta plan your trip when clearing bridges.... You may have to take the back roads.
MAYBE you can approach AAA for a route planner?

kind of confused on locations. Is that the same boat that was in Indiantown, Fl? if so, did it do a trip to the great lakes and now is in Michigan?

The boat in Indiantown is/was only 35K
If it is still available, might be able to bring it up, to Michigan, on its bottom before winter sets in.
