Folks:
Thanks for all of the replies. I hate to sound like a commercial but due to the sheer volume of responses, I am going to try to make this email reply as a form letter.
Earlier, I had said that I can send pictures. Then, I couldn't find them. Now, my wife found a few that will give you a great idea of what is for sale. However, it has been one thing after another and I must hook up my scanner which takes an scsi card, in order to scan in the pictures. I will do that tomorrow and send them to all who inquired.
Meanwhile, let me give a bit more information about the boat: 1. This is a steel-hulled boat. 2. It has a very, very low-hours Detroit Diesel 3-53. 3. It is of "trawler" design. If you have seen a Grand Banks, it is of that `` hull configuration. 4. It is 40 feet loa and 12 foot beam and 5 foot draft. 5. It has a Fiberglas wheelhouse above the mail salon that is accessed by stairs. 6. There is teak parquet flooring in the companionway and forward berth. 7. It has a stand-up shower and regular sink and an electrically operated toilet (head). 8. It has two either 12 or 16,000 BTU, marine air-conditioners and one is `` equipped with a heat-pump. 9. There is a hot water heater for the galley and shower and sinks. 10 There is a radar bridge that has a 48-mile Furuno radar, two sets of air `` horns driven by a large, on-board air compressor. 11 There is a microwave oven. 12 An full-size refrigerator with freezer on top is in the galley/salon. 13 Two-way marine radio/s. 14 Two out-dated Lorans.

"Flopper Stopper" custom designed anti-roll system. 25. Approximately 800 gallons of fuel for apprx. several thousand mile range. 26. 2 inch stainless steel shaft with anti-vibration coupler or did I remove the coupler? 27. Blaupunkt stereo. 28.

My wife and I have been in numerous 12 foot seas and while not comfortable, we were not concerned whatsoever and we are not totally stupid. 45. The large ships will be able to hear these sets of air-horns. 46. Battery mains switch, i.e., one, two, all.
Well, I know there is much more and I will be glad to answer questions. This boat is located in Galveston, Texas at the Marina Landing and Resort and her name is "St. Coralie". See "Cathy" in the office. DO NOT BOARD THIS VESSEL.
I wish that I could keep her but I am not getting younger PLUS SHE MUST BE SOLD THIS WEEK OR EARLY NEXT.
I am out of town but will have to return to dispose of the boat. The vessel needs a lot of tender, loving care. In other words, it will require a lot of work. On the other hand, one can wind up with a vessel that will take you anywhere very economically.
THIS IS NOT A CHROME AND GLASS BOAT TO SIT AT THE DOCK AND SIP COCKTAILS. iT IS MEANT TO GO AND GO HARD AND RELIABLY.
This vessel will either be sold this week or sold for scrap metal and parts. This is not savvy marketing but this is an emergency sale.

Thanks, Iggy.
I appreciate your comment.
Well, it was a true experience that has benefited us greatly or should I make a pun and truthfully say that it has expanded our horizons beyond description.
