Looking for a 42' Wesmac Sedan, no bridge for tuna. No financing necessary. It will be a quick sale for the right boat. Send PM or post info.

There are two 42's on the Wesmac site for less than 600K, but they are F/B models. I think that old Young Bros. 45' (also F/B w/ hardtop) w/ the big Mack finally sold this year (for much less than 200K.)

Cost alot less to remove a hard top on a 600K boat than buying a 1.2m boat was How I figured it when I posted the links for him.

Thanks. I've looked at the Wesmac site and talked to Steve a few times. I reviewed the boats suggested over the past couple months. I would like a boat closer to my specs. I'm just shaking the tree right now. I hope one falls out that fits me. Steve and I are talking but new is new and I don't mind used prices which fit my wallet. I don't like to finance.

We are ready to buy for the right boat and will accept some work especially if the work can be done out of town. Fiberglass work here on LI is going to be difficult after the storm and I hate working with fiberglass. Give me anything else to work on but I don't like fiberglass.

Galley up would be great. Couple of bunks and a forward v-berth. Old electronics are fantastic. I like to install all my own. A sedan cruiser seems to fit the bill. I didn't ask Steve but does anyone know if the bridge unbolts?

Oh yeah, as for the 46', looks like we are all drooling over those. Way out of my league. We're talking next step up from lobster boat finish in a 42' that's ready for tuna, will make me a happy man.

Come on, Crabman, a sawzall is a lot more fun. Nothing to it. Easy peasy.

A sawzall, that's a great idea, I was going to use a grinder. Figured by the time I get down to the hardtop, I would have perfect control. I can see myself now, coughing white dust. :eek:

So what is the scoop, Linda married Brown's son or something... She married some semi-famous person in the industry right? Love to know why that boat is for sale... Trust me I can screw up the facts... lol...

A bridge isnt the worst thing especially on a wide stable boat. Weather the bridge is bolted or bonded there will be a little glass work too be done. Or bend a weld up a aluminum pipe steering station in its place if its the weight u want to shed. Having a bridge might not have that hardcore work boat look but there are alot of advantages to having one if you have a nice stable platform like that. Great visability and real nice being up a bridge when you are piloting a boat while your guys are on a big fish. Great visual.

I personally wouldnt let a bridge be the deciding factor in purchasing a boat.

The Old Glory is 42' in Plymouth MA at Brewer Marine. It was for sale a while back it may be worth looking into. It looks to be used for lobstering now.

I'm open to options. I agree, a bridge is not a bad thing but one of my crew, who actually thinks he has a say, wants the look AND, that includes five windows. Although I have not had the opportunity to compare them up close, I kinda liked the three for visibility. He feels the five are stronger. Opinions???

Hazel brown is the qe2 (not 100% sure of the name) extended. Not a new build. Still bad ass non the less.
