Litton Trawler Any Info/Advice please

Greetings All,

I'm hopefully going to be new to the Trawler community so I've got a whole bunch of questions.* I've had my eye on a 41' Litton trawler with twin Ford Lehman diesels.*

No question she's a project but with more time than $$$ and two brothers who are willing to help I'm seriously contemplating the purchase.

From my basic research*I can tell that the Litton brand is a rare boat and I know that the company is long gone and that she was made in Taiwan.*

I did a search of the Trawler Forum and only found one poster who's admitting to owning a Litton and his last post was in 2008.* I tried sending him a message through the forum but don't have much hope of getting a reply.

Anyone else have any sources for Litton info.* Like what I should be looking for regarding problems or just general advice on problems with Littons.

My background in boating is all with sportfisherman style boats so I'm a big fan of flybridges and twin screws.* I'm starting a family and like the idea of*more space and*being able to travel rather economically as compared to twin gas burning 454's.

Any advice is appreciated!

** Good luck on your quest.* Shouldn't have to be said but get GOOD hull and machinery surveys PERIOD.* Condition isn't based so much on make but what maintenance she has had or not had.* Many on this forum have taken somewhat sow's ears and now have silk purses.** What MAJOR problems are found in the survey will determine how far your $$ will go.* I understand you've got time, but materials may spend your dream quickly.*
