    My wife and I love what you have done to your boat! We are considering new countertops and, more importantly, vacuflush heads. From your pictures, it looks like you cut out the wall behind the aft head to install your vacuflush system. Did you also use that hole to take out the old holding tank? Is that wall simply that, and not an important structural bulkhead? Where is the holding tank for the Vacuflush system? Is there still access to the area behind the head through the cabinet door alongside the steps to the cabinsole? Sorry for all the questions, but you have already walked a mile in the shoes we are looking to put on.

    Thanks,

    Keith

    Randyzon-

    What color corian are your tops? We are thinking about going with "Edisto" for ours and just curious if it will be lighter or darker than what you installed. Tops look great!!

    I would like to Corian the bathroom counters. I haven't decided on whether to cut out the guest head cabinet and rebuild it with something better suited to storage and removal in case the holding tank ever needs to be replaced. I would want to do that before putting in new counters.

    The bathtub seems to be mostly a waste especially since there isn't enough hot water for more than a couple of inches. We have used it only for the grand kids for their baths but could do without it. I was also thinking about utilizing part of that space to build out the guest shower with a seat since the standing room is so limited.

    A lot of the younger people want the dayrunner/sleek type boats but they aren't near as practical as the 4588/4788 with low height and less side wind issues.

    Lemme know when you get close. I'm a Corian Distributor and can get the materials, but only in whole sheets. I want to do my own (I have the CNC equipment necessary), but don't need full sheets for my trawler. I've got very limited counter space and a couple guys going together could save some $$.

    You've done a beautiful job. These Bayliner pilothouses are a great canvas to remodel as the layouts are so usefull. I anticipate these boats are going to be highly sought after in the future as more and more discover the absolute bargain the Bayliner pilothouse is and what they can do with it.

    We remodeled our 2001 4788 after looking at spending double on many of the other brands and I am sure we are much happier with the outcome and enjoyment level.

    That looks outstanding! We are shopping for a 4788 right now. Once we find the right one, could we visit your boat and get the details on your projects? I love the TV location... Rob

    That looks really terrific! I've often pondered the amount of space the microwave takes up when we use it so rarely, and wished i had that much extra pantry storage. Your new galley arrangement is outstanding.

    Costco set up the countertop installation. It was the best price and Costco is really good about minding their contractors work. I think the whole thing was a little over $3 grand. There is no warranty on the marine installation because of hull flexing but we only have one narrow area in the transition from the window to the stove and none of the countertops flex anyway. That transition area is the only splice and it can't be seen unless you know where it is at. The molded in sink is absolutely the best. You won't be disappointed because it brightens up the interior and is so easy to keep clean. I also put in a hot/cold dispenser and a secondary water filter for it and the ice maker.

    You are welcome to take a look if you are in the Lake Union area.

    Very NICE!!! Who did the counter tops for you and were you happy with the work and price? I've been contemplating doing the same thing to our 1994 4788 counter tops as our counter tops are like the 45 as this was the first year 4788.
