    thanks. I was thinking 10-15, so I'm in the ball park.

      I will add that the Bimini can be replaced for around $1000. With the pilothouse being such a great place to run the boat on the 4788 I see little benefit to a full enclosure. It provides more surface area for wind to push you around while docking. In my experience having run several boats in the PNW, full enclosures are needed for boats that have poor visibility from the lower station, including most Bayliner MYs. This is not the the case for the 4788. The only advantage a full enclosure would have for us is to provide a place for kids to sleep out of the weather!

        Currently I have my eye on one in particular. Price is relatively low, but the boat is virtually stock, so will take a lot of updates. Also, its been sitting for a bit longer than I'd like to see, but still worth looking at.
        The search goes on.

        Toni - if it's the one I'm thinking of look super close - we were on it when it first came in and while I too think it's got legs, when I see water pumps etc. in the cockpit I tend to be a bit afraid of the unkonwn. I also believe it's still propp'd at 24x24..The boat has been out of the water for a few years - unless the systems were all drained, prepare for a lot of freezing damage etc..

        We should have looked at it harder, but the broker wasn't taking us seriously and lobbed a ridiculous number. Call me stubborn, but I'll walk before I'll reward that kind of behaviour..

        good luck in the search, and if the one behind you in your club (with the Hino's) come up for sale, send me a PM

          thanks for the heads up. Been a bit busy lately and hope to get back on the trail in the next week or so.

            We initially started looking for a 4788 and found a few in the Sacramento/Stockton area that had been stored in covered slips. Then we saw a Meridian 490!! But finally economics brought us to a 4588 in Southern Ca. I factored in all of the updates needed & made the adjusted low offer subject to & after the sea trials, haul out, & survey. (My survey was more thorough than the surveyor.)
            I actually was close on the costs of updates & replacements but it took sometime to get to them. I did do a full service to the engine to establish my own validated starting point.
            IMHO, find the best equipped & updated vessel & make an insulting offer, work up from there. They want to sell & there are few buyers. Cash speaks! You’ll still have unanticipated costs.
