Well we purchased a 3587. Had a survey and sea trial. All seems fine or will be resolved by dealer. There no doubt are model specific areas and issues to be aware of and are there upgrade recommendations? Gonna be tough to wait till next season!
Thank you,
Dean

Congratulations. This will give you time to figure out all the systems and get all your maintenance planned and performed. Depending on your cruising area - you might still have time to get the feel of the wheel and docking characteristics of the 3587. Still a lot of boat for the money with 3 staterooms.

Thank you, well we are headed back to Texas for winter. Boat is being stored in Wilson NY on Lake Ontario. Read so much negative Bayliner opinions but I really could not see much difference in quality between the Bayliner and the others we looked at. Being a one owner low hour boat really appealed to me.

Thank you Jeffw. Glad there is a forum to lean on if necessary. We had a Bluebird bus that I would never had bought if there was not a active forum.

You'll soon find out that Bayliner builds a quality boat. We've had our 4087 nearly 10 years. It's had a few issues, all to do with ancillary systems, pumps etc. When I had a thruster put in a few years ago, the yard showed me the core they cut out, lots of solid well laid fiberglass. As you've found out, you'll get a wealth of help on this board, plus you can always do a search for specific questions. XX87's can be tough to work on, port side port engine in particular. And can blow around like a leaf in windy weather. But for the money no other boat comes close to providing your family with so much internal space. Having stairs not ladders was a big factor in my decision, makes it easy to get people and provisions up on the flybridge.

Enjoy and congratulations.

Thank you Machog, I really appreciate your thoughts.
She has a bow thruster which showed its value during the docking following the sea trial. This is our first boat and I really relied on others for their assesments. I am detail guy and am anxious to investigate and detail stuff. Very nice vessel you have there! A cat has got to be a great pet for a boat!

One of the things to consider is replacement of all the sanitation hoses, including the holding tank vent line. Hoses of this vintage are probably permeated and can result in foul odors in the boat. High quality, non-permeable sanitation hose is the way to go. I understand that it is a challenge getting at some of the hoses on a 3587 or 4087; some of the owners here can provide additional advise.

I'll examine those hoses, likely original.

As you know you have 2 x 33 gal, holding tanks on your new boat. Every chance we get we top of the tanks with fresh water and do a pump out. At the end of the season I do 3-4 fills with fresh and pump then pump out. At our marina we have great pump out, so its easy. By the last PO, its almost running clear;-) We also add this stuff from Wally World every flush; www.walmart.com/ip/Camco-TST-Orange-Powe...tment-1-gal/23636872 . There are dozens of treatments out there, so take your pick. I've heard NoFlex is good if you have a bad smell and don't feel like changing the hoses.

Our 21 year old boat has no 'nasty' odors. In fact since we put new carpet in last year it has nice fresh smell.

How do you monitor the fullness of the tanks?
And what is the procedure for pump out?

Unless you have a TankTender, a small panel with a red LED in the middle, or in rare instances a gauge, I go by sound. Same way I do when filling the fuel tanks. 33 gallon holding tanks are quite large compared with many boats of a similar size. Worst case is you could either get a bit of blow back on deck (very unpleasant but not normally fatal!). Or it could come out of the breather. Talking of breather, its important that they are both clear-no cobwebs or other stuff blocking them. Best way I found to clear them is a reverse flush. Get as good a seal as you can with your hose over the breather and flush it backwards for a few seconds. They are both on the starboard side immediately under the deck pump out fitting. The other vent next to the aft fitting is the fresh water tank breather, that will squirt out if out if you over fill your water tank-no big deal, at least you know it's full.
