    Lake Union/Washington 50' slip

    Anyone know of a slip covered or not for a Bayliner 4788 50'LOA in Lake Union/Washington or surrounding area?

        I do not know if it matters but a stock 4788 is more than 50' LOA.

          I have a couple of them in the 50ft slips next to me and they are right at 50 feet including the swim platform. In some cases you might have to have the pulpit stick over the dock by a few inches but it's not a big deal. And if you back it in, then it really doesn't matter

          Stock swim platform and pulpit put them over 50'.
          The molded hull alone is 47' 4" without either attached.
          I think they are about 3 feet over 50 if that measurement is a concern.

        Correction - I just checked a few original 4788 catalogs and the overall length as rigged is 54'.
        Molded hull is 47'4".
        Overall length with platform and pulpit as rigged is 54'.
        Hope this helps

          I guess our "50ft" slips are a bit bigger than I thought...

        From what I have measured, I think about the shortest I can cut mine to, absent a chainsaw, is about 51' If I end up ever selling our boathouse, which is 60', and have to make arrangements for something shorter, my plan was to hinge the pulpit rather than discard it. A bit easier, less expensive, and I still like the looks of the OEM styling. I did it on our 4388 and was happy with the results.

          I do not know if it matters where the OP is but around here they measure the boats exact length in many places and the 47 has always been way over 50'.
          It also explains the size difference between the 47 and many other boats and Bayliners that are 'labeled' close to the 47's length and then appear 'much shorter' when rafted up next to them.
          Each weekend we often rafted up to many other boats labeled 46, 45 , 44 , 48 and yet many feet shorter in comparison. (Cruisers, Sea Ray, Silverton, even some Bayliners)

            When I got on-contract with the 4550 I walked from SLU to Fremont Bridge, stopping and inquiring at every marina along the way. I found two available slips that afternoon. I'm at Marina Mart for $600/month including water and a very large storage area, in a 70' slip with a 15'10" opening (hence the low price). The other lead I had was at China Harbor for $800+ and no storage.
            I think the best way to find big boat moorage on Lake Union is just to inquire repeatedly. There's so much demand and so little supply the harbormasters know they don't need to put forth any effort.

            Also, I think the 45xx is 50'4" and the 4788 is 52'4" but I could be misremembering. I'll see if I can get an "exact" measurement this weekend.

            I wonder if that's how they came up with the "50" in the "4550".
