That’s actually interesting.
Why do you call it little?
My car is an Avalon and it’s not little.

I guess it's a matter of perspective. The boat is just under 65ft, but it's parked in front of a 92ft sportfisher. But you are absolutely correct, it's not little.

It was quite heavily armed "back in the day". KJ

How about a real trawler.

Strip off the fishing gear and sell that to pay for extending the cabin and interior refit, world cruiser.

LOL
Lots of old gillnetters like this around. I doubt you would get much for the old gear. With so few openings for net fishing now due to poor returns of salmon, not much of a market. This one looks pretty tired, so the asking price is way high. A decent conversion will cost lots more than the present asking price, so buying a true recreational trawler would be lots cheaper and have none of the hassles of doing a conversion.

That real trawler could be great if it comes with a license and you want to go fishing.

Best hope may be build one from two. Get a nice boat that needs an engine and a junker with a good engine. Someone posted this in another thread:

A tired old boat that is behind in all it's care is too much. Unless you want to stay at the dock and work on it, works for a lot of people.

An honest assessment and I agree.

I'm not a fisher man.



That old girl has potiental for someone. If it were closer, I'd at least go look at it. I could use that running gear.

I forget... ben... how much you looking to spend?

Originally built by some really good manufacturers [Bertram, Tollycraft, Hatteras, Grand Banks, Defever - and the like]: There are often good condition older pleasure trawler type boats [34' to 45' range] for sale at fair cost. Estate sales, divorce proceedings, boat owners who have decided to quit or maybe need quick cash make it possible to locate some well maintained yet inexpensive good condition boats.

That said: You need to be constantly searching for the "correct" boat that will come along. When you find it - be ready to immediately pounce with cash! The really good boat deals can get gobbled up by a smart buyer within hours of going on the market.

Why bother buying it all? You'd be just as rewarded by tossing the money straight off the dock.

It depends on the boat of course. If I found one of those freshly looped boats still in good condition around the $20 to 30,000 range, I'd pounce. I thought I had a 35' Weber's Cove a couple weeks back but someone beat me to it.



It would have to be close, around the Charleston area, or so cheap I could have it hauled to my location. I still have two years or a little more before I can dedicate 100% of my time to a boat at the coast. Currently, I can only do one weekend a month, at best, if the boat is in Charleston or the surrounding areas.

True. I found it to be an interesting boat and posted. This is the interesting boats thread, isn't it?

Oh darn. You posted it. Now someone is going to buy my winter home out from under me.

Crikey, that's a nice boat. Is it weird that it almost seems too nice for me? I don't know if I could ever feel at home on something like that. It's just too... perfect. I'd feel like I was spoiling it just by being there somehow.

Looking through 35' to 50' single engine trawlers, I came across this one, now reduced to 200K:

Agreed its interesting but I will be surprised if it sells at anywhere near that price. Its not a interior arrangement that would suit a lot of potential buyers. Covey Island Boats are really well built and probably less maintenance than most all FRP boats. The wood parts scare people. Beautiful boat, thin market. Hope for a buyer that can appreciate this vsl.

Ran across some Sea Piper videos on YouTube. The forward and rear doors would make it super easy to dock.

https://youtu.be/hjllJQl5fXk

This one is gyro stabilized
https://youtu.be/1RsmX5E1ZYQ

Itís a pretty small looking boat. Is it supposed to be trailerable ?

Powered by a 300hp, 3 cylinder wichmann diesel, reckon it burns 30lph.

Lovely sound, feeling sleepy.

Who would want a ridiculous foremast like this??
Boat looks old. Must be a reason for that mast.
