Thanks Glen

Like some others, I have long admired the Fisher 38 trawler. I have never seen one, but have spent a lot of time on Fisher 34 and 37 motorsailers.

In my research I found a photo of a plan drawing of the 38 which seems to show there might be some sort of ballast under the forward berth, but that is just a guess on my part.

If you haven't already done so, you might try joining the Fisher Owner's Association and research their forum and newsletters or try contacting other members for more information.

Hi Larry,

This is identical to josselli, the keel has a fresh water tank mid ship not sure about the one under the island bed up front, there are about 4 fairways 38's in England and 1 in Scotland I have tried to email etc but to no avail.

Many thanks
