    Soon-to-be (hopefully) 3888 Owner

    Greetings everyone!

    First off, it's great to be here and thanks to all the folks who make it possible. I'm new to power boats in general, and Bayliners in particular (grew up with sailboats), so I will undoubtedly have more than a few questions. Provided the sea-trial and inspection don't turn up any red flags, I will be getting a '94 3888 and prepping her as a personal dive boat. The electronics and other bits aren't new, so I expect to be updating quite a few things moving forward, but am excited about the project.

    Cheers!

          Thanks for the welcome! I've added a bit of info to my profile. Boat pics will have to wait until she is mine

            Home port will be Pleasant Harbor. I have the slip, just need the boat to pass inspection...

                Some of the wood needs a bit of TLC, especially the stern, so I'll do a bit of before and after as well. A bit of oil makes wood so much prettier Getting new canvas as well--I cringe at what that will cost, but I know it's worth it.

                  I use a product called LeTonquin that I get from American Tar tarsmell.com the first coat looks pretty bad but by the time I get to number six, it looks like varnish except that it’s oil. It’s very forgiving and can be repaired easily if scratched.

                    Nice! Where are you at? What kind of modifications are you doing to make it more dive freindly?

                      Awesome, thanks! Can you tell me which one? I see several variants on American Tar's website.

                      I'll be moored in Pleasant Harbor, WA. Scuba improvements will start with a proper ladder, tank holders, and camera rinse tank. Later on is new electronics with sonar, and eventually I hope to install a compressor for fills and blending
