Oh, almost forgot the Albin 27 and the Albin 34. The 27 is a little small and the 34 (mid 80's) has too high of a fuel burn. I'm looking for 2-3gph.

Thanks again for all your input,,,very enlightening! I looked at my 1st trawler vintage1970s And could see only work and upkeep. Leaky windows rotten wood cracked fiberglass chalky hull etc,,,but it did have a diesel that looked and sounded good. Then a Carver 32 with little headroom twin gassers and a chalky hull. This week it's down to Ft Myers to look at 3 trawlers a sailboat and then off to the Keys to look at more trawlers an Egg Harbor 2 blue water houseboats and a couple of sailboats. At that point if nothing strikes my fancy it's off to Miami to look at a 38ft carver a burnscraft and a houseboat. At that point it's either I quit or go to Jacksonville. Ahh hell I may not leave the keys, I hear Jimmy's in town. Anyway thanx for adding to the thread folks and here is a link on Hinos
