    Ahoy to BOC!

    Ahoy to all - I am a new member to BOC. I've had a few boats over the last 20 years. I recently acquired a boat new to me - 1996 Bayliner 2858, it was professionally stretched 4-1/2 ft (long story), so it actually is 32+ ft, but still trailerable if needed, (the cabin is unchanged, the back deck is HUGE. It has a new motor Merc 8.1L and Bravo III O/D. I purchased the boat as a partially completed project - the motor was installed but nothing hooked up (as well as a bunch of other stuff - head, water, electrical, steering, throttle/shift, etc.) - so I've been working on getting it all functional. I'm getting close and have had it out a few times last fall before winter. I'm looking forward to making more progress on it again now that Spring is here.

    I have researched BOC in the past for solving issues with my previous/older boats and found helpful info. I figure I'll provide help to others on things I can and also I have some questions that I know you all will be able to help me solve - THANK YOU in advance! I'm happy to be aboard BOC.
    Happy Boating

    Welcome aboard!

    can you post some pictures showing where the boat was extended including the engine compartment? Very curious to see what was done.

              Wow, an extended 2858! We had a 1998 2858 and loved it, 7.4 mpi, B3 outdrive and a bow thruster. Once you get it all sorted you'll love it. We need pictures!

                  I am located in Anchorage, AK. I will take some pics and see if i can figure out how to upload to the forum. I figure i should start a new thread for that (I'm new to forum posting) and will include the list of projects needed to complete and also "desired improvements".

                      Did you buy it this way or have it done? If you did how much did it cost?

                        I bought it as a partially completed project. The hull work (cut and extended 4.5 ft) was completed, professionally by a local AK shop. I talked extensively with the shop/guys that did the work before purchasing, in-progress photos, etc. I've been working on all the rest and getting it functional again (it sat unfinished a few years with PO).

                          Greetings fellow Alaskan. I remembered seeing so pics from BWA doing a Bayliner stretch job. I wonder if thats the one? Id be curious to see how she handles. Id love to have 4 extra feet of fishing deck on my 2859.

                              Goodness.....that would seem to be a different boat now, would it not?
                              Do you have to have it engineered, to see if the integrity has not been compromised?
                              I am guessing no such requirement exist for private use, but if you wanted to run charters...or for insurances coverage, maybe?

                              It looks really nice!
