I owned a Hunter Passage 420 for a number of years and realized that while I liked the idea of sailing, I really liked to get where I was going and spend most of my time motoring.

I just purchased a 1995 Bayliner 4788 Pilothouse. As I'm sure you all know, this is much like buying a used house. It's it pretty good shape, but the prior owners made improvements that were not done well and neglected other parts.

I'm looking forward to getting advise regarding problems I encounter as I move forward in my new life as a trawler owner.

Welcome to the TF, Mark, and congrats on your purchase! Hope we'll be seeing some photos one of these days.

Welcome to the forum! Congratulations on the new boat.

I'm tired of fast moves, I've got a slow groove, on my mind.....
I want to spend some time, Not come and go in a heated rush.....
