just today i walked away from the second trawler i had under contract after the survey. both had high moisture content in various locations as well as rot. one was an albin in grand rivers ky and the other an island gypsy.
what is the history on this boat ? any recent surveys? i am ready to buy and can be there in a matter of days. recently sold my sea ray and ready to start on my next boat. email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I replaced the batteries in 2016. The engine has its own battery. There are 2 banks (A&B) of 2-6volt batteries each, connected in series, to give 12 volts. There is an inverter to power the whole boat. There is not a generator currently. There is a spot in the lazarette for a genset though. The AC can only be used when on shore power.
