An excellent 1st trawler, and many Mainship owners move up to larger or newer Mainships for their next boat.
Like wyoboater said: "Mainship is a quality utilitarian boat,"
They got it right where it was important, and kept it simple. For example, the components on a Mainship are typically quality selections. Perkins engines on the originals (+ others,) Sea Star steering, Rule bilge pumps, Princess stoves, Jabsco heads, etc.
For a fixer upper the originals are probably one of the best values in small cruisers on the market. Prices as low as the teens its hard to get more boat for the money, and all the idioscrincies are well known so you can go in eyes wide open
