• Trawler Forum Classified Posting Guidelines
    • We expect ads placed to be related to the topic of this forum.
    • Ads that are inactive for 180 days or longer may be moved to the Classified Archive and locked. Ads may be relisted if the item is still current. Alternatively, owners may contact a Moderator to reinstate an archived ad.
    • The Classified section is for advertising, members are asked to refrain from posting discussions to a Classified Ad. Please start a discussion thread or PM the owner for discussions.
    • Do not hijack another member's ad by posting unsolicited commentary. Example: if a member has posted an ad offering an anchor for sale, don't add a post to his thread stating that you have an anchor you'd like to get rid of also. Posts deemed as unsolicited commentary may be removed.
    • For your own security, do NOT include your e-mail or phone number in your ad. Instead request that interested parties contact you via PM (private message) to provide owners contact info.
    • Brokers, Dealers, or those with a commercial interest in a sale are prohibited from posting in Classifieds.
    • Only Trawler Forum Commercial Members may post ads in the Commercial section. You must be a designated Commercial Member to start threads in this section of the forum. (Contact a moderator if you have questions about this)
    • Don't post links to commercial sites where you are also offering the boat, such as eBay, Craigslist or Yachtworld, etc. unless it contains a more in-depth description, additional information or pictures.
    • Place only one ad per item (you may repost only when your ad has expired and been removed).
    For Sale ads MUST include:

  • Avoid Scams.

    Our classifieds are free and anyone registered here is welcome to post an ad.
    Be aware that there are unscrupulous folks out there. Avoid any interaction that seems odd to you or �feels� wrong. Inquiries from unknown buyers, buyers �agents� and other non-traditional approaches should be treated with extreme caution.

    Beware of unsolicited contacts offering to put you in touch with someone else who is buying or selling via e-mail or text.

    Do not post your e-mail address or phone number in a classifieds ad.

    Hints that you may be dealing with a Scammer:
    • Seller or Buyer approaches you via a direct email or PM and then steers you to an off-site communication method (text or email).
    • No posts or very few forum posts.
    • Recent forum membership
    • Insists on conducting negotiations via email or text rather than PM
    • Requires payment via Bank Transfer, BitCoin/CryptoCurrency, WesternUnion or other unsecured method.
    • Buyer or Seller suggests Paypal "Friends and Family" payment. Paypal is a good way to arrange payment but an invoice for goods and services should be used rather than "Friends and Family". "Friends and Family" avoids fees BUT there is no recourse if the transaction runs aground. Friends and Family is for gifts only. There is no protection for Friends and Family transactions, so never ever use it to buy something.
    • Declines to allow viewing the item before proceeding with the transaction.

Always felt these were nicely laid out boats - how many hours on that FL120? any other sig upgrades? Glassed over any old teak decking or just kept undercover? Home port and possibility of transferable moorage?
We love the layout. So many Tri-Cabins out there, but we appreciate the large salon.
The hours on the tach show less than 3,000.
Survey as of last summer.
Most of our upgrades are in the listing, but new windlass, both bow & stern thrusters, radios, chart plotters, radar, A/P, Isotherm, galley faucet, tub faucet, flybridge configuration (seats, bimini, windscreen), Weaver davit system. Bottom paint and zincs last summer. The fuel tanks are nearly full and I brought someone in 2 years ago to filter and clean the tanks . . . then we filled them!
Still have the teak decks, but we've been undercover for the 24 years, as was the prior owner. But when we're out (up to 5 weeks) we've never experienced a deck leak.
Theoretically the home port is St Helens OR, but we're in Seattle and that is where we keep her. We're at McGinnis Marina, just inside the Ballard Locks, so fresh water. I don't know that I can guarantee it, but I am fairly certain the marina owner would be happy to have the slip transferred to a new owner. There are some empty slips at the marina!
