To post pictures do I first have to add them to my album and post from there? Also I suppose there is no auto-size function to this software so I have to down size photos to post or they wont go, right?

She has twin Cat 3208's, 435 HP 1900 hours, 12kw genset, 4kw genset, Naiad stabilizers, and water maker.

Also, two davits, one for the bow and one for the hard top.

I plan to put in a Bow Thruster.

I had a 32' Ericson sailboat from 1986 to 2006. Sold it to go the the dark side. In 2007 I bought a 1989 Lien Hwa 47 just before the great market crash. I was in sales and sales just stopped. I supported the boat for about 3 years and just had to let her go. Loved her though. I was looking for another 47/48 but I just couldn't let this 55 get away. I am a little worried about docking such a big boat all the time but maybe it will be the same as the 47. It will be painful paying the added slip fees and bottom cleaning but heck, you only live once.

I agree - great looking boat and congratulations, although I am a little confused re the layout - does it have two saloons - the two photos of the saloon appear different

Yes, I see what you mean Brissy. Also, that's not a trawler, that there's a small ship..!

I think the dinette is on a mezzanine level.
Nice boat, great condition, welcome aboard.
