Was the flybridge added later? Seems like you want your radar up high with the least amount of obstructions (obstructions = blind spots on a radar). You are even looking down on your anchor light!

What does baja call it or your insurance?
Baja calls it a 38 Special, LOL!!!
Here's a link to some pic's and questions I had about her during our negotiations with the contract.
http://www.offshoreonly.com/forums/b...know-boat.html
It hasn't made it out of the indoor starage yet in New Hampshire for the vessel/powertrain surveys and the sea trial.
The insurance I was quoted came in a little over a 1000 per year.
It really sucks that I talked to the seller Saturday and he said they'd had 18 more inches of snow the night before, now it could be mid May before it's available to be gone over.

4bus, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to go off topic and hijack your thread. Personally I'd love to own a 40'+ diesel Mainship performance trawler and any 35'+ OL. NorTech, Cig etc.. to truly enjoy both worlds in.
But, I sure don't see that happening, LOL!!!

See ya,
Kelly

Funny you mentioned, heard someone just requested to have one built.
Think it may get done with staggered 1350's.

When I asked the dealer what the top speed was he said "Does it really matter?" I put my tail back between my legs and stopped talking, as my he and wife talked about how to go about changing the curtain colors.

Not enthused about the side view, but the cockpit and cabin made me interested. Love cockpit galleys. Sleeps six, not bad for a 30

Love the layout

It's a standard Sea Ray fly bridge boat.. I dont have a radar arch which would be ideal I grant you that. But like I said I never us it and never needed to.

HAHAHAHA....that had to be one of the best post's so far this year.... We did the cruiser thing too...bought the wife a 280 Sundancer a couple of years ago to keep her happy.... All I have to do is keep it clean and stocked up...

It worked great for me I didn't hear a peep out of her when I bought some new Eddie Young motors last year for mine....although she does make a few snide comments about my "girlfriend" from time to time....lol
