    Which came first?-gctid401277

    Westbay 45' or Bayliner 45'? They sure look alike, so obviously they must be "related" somehow. Monk?

      dyoung- I'd love to hear that story too- PM it to me.

      I was always amazed at how similar the 45 West Bay is. I like how they made the instrument panel steeper on the west bay to allow for much more room for the pilothouse settee. I too was always under the impression the west bay came after the bayliner 45 as the earliest west bay's i've seen are circa 1986 or 1987 (that's just off top of my head- I could be wrong about those years). I also loved how they came with Cummings or Cat 3208's vs. the hinos in the bayliners. Not that hinos are bad....just easier to get parts for a 3208 Cat!

      Would be nice if the bayliner 45 carried the same price tag as the west bays though!:arr
