    help I. d..i. this bayliner...-gctid405956

    for about a year I have been looking for a fishing only boatand yesterdayI found someone that wanted to get rid of their boat . it was either going to boat angel or the dump:thumb so I pulled the trigger and now I own it, only problem is I don't know what it is. the bill of sale simply says 1984 bayliner 23'trophy cuddy cabin, the s/n isbl2b14fg048-4, from that all I can deceipher is that it is a bayliner and it was built in 1984, other than that I don't know the model , etc. it has a 5.7 mercruiser and alpha 1 drive. the engine is a mich.mtrs. rebuilt long block installed last winter and has 15 hours on the meter. alll and all it's not a bad boat, jit needs some work, but I woul expect that. Can anyone come up with a model number?op guess I'll have to revise my signature one of these days.thanks,pat

    I think that is the 2460 without the hardtop option

        thanks for the response.. you are right, the lines of both boats are very similart only difference I can see is the 2460 has cabin windows and mine does not. hardtop option? yeah, that would certainly be nice. I'd rather have a hardtop than a bimini top. I know that there are a few after- market manufacturers of hardtops, but I don't know anyone that has used those suppliers...anybody, got any ideas?

        regards,

        pat

            I don't see cabin windows in the pic I posted. I know the 2860 has them.The hardtop is nice. Here is my 2160 on the launch ramp last Saturday.

                Buy one with a hardtop.

                Aftermarket hardtops will cost you more than the boat is worth.

                    The factory hard top is nice on the 2460 Trophy (had one), but I'll be darned--I hit my head so many times on that aft drip rail that I have a permanent dent in my skull. I eventually put pipe foam on it, but still.....

                    You can certainly get an aftermarket hardtop such as from Atlantic Towers (had one of those too, different boat), but you are probably going to pay more (and a LOT) more for it vs. what you paid for the whole boat. That being said, I really liked the Atlantic top. VERY well built, and you could have it built tall enough that you aren't going to be clonking your head on it all the time.

                        I saw one of those when I was boat shopping and the hardtop was raised about 4 inches by what appeared to be 2x4 spacers between the window frames and the hull. They were painted black to match the window frame so it was barely noticeable.

                          ding, ding, ding... we have a winner. I just received an e-mail from bayliner and according to them the serial number belongs to a 2460 trophy. i sure wish that it had a hardtop.:sorrow:

                          thank you for all the replys.

                            Actually, the kind I'm talking about are self-supported via built in arch (from the side, it looks like a radar arch holding it up). Here are a couple examples (taken from the Atlantic Towers website--they have numerous customer photos online):

                              And I was referring to your head hitting hardtop.The one I checked out was just right for me, but without those spacers someone added, I would of been wacking my head too.
