    Hi All....New owner of a 1987 Contessa Command Bridge

    This is my first Bayliner and I've been reading these forums over the past few days and I would like previous Contessa owners to offer tips and experiences. First thing that's a bit confusing, the 2850, 2855, 2858 designations, I can't seem to figure out which is which. Also, this boat is 454 powered, with 1100 hours on the clock, running a Volvo Penta outdrive. Took it out for a sea trial and it ran great. She's in great shape for her age, and today after doing more research, I found the usual rot in the radar arch. I'm loving the boat so far, and looking forward in hearing the advice from fellow Bayliner owners

    If you don't mind can you snap a couple pics of the engine and post them?? Doing a retrofit of a 454 on mine but have nothing to go from. Thanks! Oh and welcome aboard! you'll get none of the abuse you'll find on other sights lol.
