    Repowered 38(39) bayliner on craigslist-gctid371838

    I don't normally post boats I see for sale on craigslist, but this one is very interesting.

    The boat is in Alaska, and has been repowered with Cummins engines.

    The asking price of the boat, is very minimal over the cost he paid for the repower.

      I bet the port engine was a bear to install. Id cry too if I had to cut the door frame and windows out to install the stb engine.

        Cruising speed 22 knots, max speed 28 knots?? That ain't right.

          Seems a tad fast to me as well.

          Everybody seems to exagerate cruise speeds on boats they're selling.

          I have no clue why because anybody educated on a particular model knows that boats normal cruising speeds.

          Personally I thingk a great engine in the 38 or even the 45/47s would be a 200 hp natural asperated diesel.

          Thought about doing it on our 47 but decided that with 200 hp engines the 47 would have been impossible to sell.

            Kevin, I have had the same thought. I probably will need to replace my turbos on my 45...thought about just saying heck with it and converting them to naturally aspirated but won't do it even though I have no need for turbos.

              Exactly.

              I think that the 45/47 would make a great full displacement coastal cruiser.

              I seriously thought about the 200HP cummins NA engines when I did the repower on our 47. Very simple, easy to work on, very reliable.

                Yeah, 28kn in that boat is likely a bit of an exaggeration.

                When I repowered my 3888 with 8.1L Volvo big blocks, I could hit 30mph (Statute miles per hr). That was with much more HP, less torque, different gears, same shafts, same props (repitched). It created lots of white water and was a bit skittish with those small rudders.



                Still, those Cummins would be great engines to have in a 38xx.

                  I repowered a 1984 3870 with 2 300 hp Perkins, at the sea trial the boat maxed out at 27 knots, a 2 years later the props were changed and an increase of 1 pitch added, that boat flies. It is located in Seward, AK. 300 hp @ 2400 rpm, we hit 2500 rpm in the sea trial.

                  The perkind will fit through the af deck door by removing the heat exchanger and some small attachments, the port I cut the deck engine room door wider and used 3 chain hoists and managed to nose down the engine and with a lot of work the engine went in whole, front stringer mount needed to be moved back, used the original shafts with the 220 trany, should have gone with 301 for a better angle, engine can mount with a slight nose down with the 301, up to 8 deg.

                    Well there you go, from someone who's repowered one of these.

                    I guess the Craigslist ad was not really an exageration after all.

                    If the rest of the boat in the craigslist as is in good shape, the asking price makes it a very good deal indeed.

                        Someone on this site repowered a sunken 47 with 110 Yanmars I believe. Haven't seen anything from him in a while, but very interesting project.

                          I find the salon a bit bland. I prefer a more nautical theme and a slightly busier pattern on my curtains

                              Ours with the 110 Yanmars is a 4588. Top sustainable cruise is about 10 knots, so you sure want to be ok with that as a top speed. Noise and vibration at all speeds is a big improvment. Like the lower dead slow speed too. I don't think there is any significant fuel savings from this one at 7.5 knots, over our last 4588 with 250 Hinos at 7.5 knots though.
