I still feel sick over the loss of our 1996 2452.

I avoided re-ending a young lady which probably would have resulted in her death... (not my fault)...

Fiberglass is replaceable.... That is what insurance is for...

The boat was replaced almost a year to the day with our newer 2001. So we are happy again...

I've had a 98 2452 5.7 B2 for almost 3 years and I'm still impressed with it.
I spend more time tinkering with it than using it. I added a camper kit,bow roller,freshwater cooling and a new SS prop. This off seasion I'll add a full swim step and some lighting. I'm using a laptop GPS chartploter and wishing I had a "real" one. I like having something I can improve and use. I think if it were the finished the way I want it I'd be bored.

Tonight I was out in back remounting the table so it will be a little more solid. It was nice out there with the heater and stereo going. I'm also hooking up some led lights under the side rails to have some low level lighting in the cockpit while on the hook next spring.

I was looking at the photos trying to see where the supports on the port side of the full swimstep mount to the transum. The starbord side is supported from the top but the port side looks to be attached to the trim tab or close.

Is that correct. The full step is my next project.

Any idea what the height of the 2452 or a 242 is when on a trailer?

Depends on the model year... pre-2000 is about 6" shorter and fits under my 10 ft door with the radar mounted on top... My current 2001 has radar on top and does not fit by 6".

Unless you can lower the air in your trailer tires, no way it will fit under a 9' door.

My plan for next winter is to make the radar removable so I can avoid using the canvas cover...

I have a 2000 2452 with 5.0 alpha, going on 4th year with it. Was sitting in a yard for a couple of years when I bought, saw little use. We have changed that, on it every weekend possible in summer, take the occasional trip on it. Heading back to NY this summer to finish up the Erie Canal. Love that this thing is so easy to trailer, extends my range dramatically. Have done Fla keys, most of SC coast and all on NC coast in this. Did half the canal a year before I got this in my old Wellcraft 23 W/A cuddy, this cabin is a HUGE improvement, enlcosed head a big plus for first mate. Love it still, her too!

My 2001 2452 measures 12' 2" off the road on the trailer.
Forget getting into a garage unless you have a really high door. That's a 6' high fence just in back of it.

Giday,
I've got a '97 2452. Fitted a quick genius windlass and doesn't that make stopping easy. The boat is perfect for my wife and I but it is very tender with more people on board. With people sitting on the transom seats she doesn't like to sit very flat at cruising speeds, has any body else had this problem?

The boat is very stern heavy anyway and with less than a 5.7, you'll be hard pressed to get her out of the hole without moving people forward until on plane...

My Family Has a 1992 Bayliner 2452 and I love it its great we use it at least 4 times a week in the season we got it the end of season in 2008 and we have put over 300 hours on it since then!! its really reliable and good in waves!! we use it for fishing and the occasional cruise with friends but no matter what it works for anything all my firends with bigger boats envy it because of how economical it is on gas plus the windows dont make you feel like your in a cave!! so all in all we LOVE OUR 2452!! :cool:

Ace, looks like you keep your boat in top shape. Those hulls sure do a nice job reflecting the light...

Hello fellow 242/ 2452 ers.
This is mainly for Doug but I'm guessing others are curious. I have the 242 like you Doug, 2006-5.7-B2.

One question is; How does one gain access to the wire path for the hard top to install items overhead, such as radar etc. I suspect I will have to remove rivets from the starboard stanchion.

I need the latch for the helm storgae door. (cracked the plastic). Bay will only sell the whole door.

I've got more issues, but anything about these two will get me going this year.

PS
My hat is off to you Doug. Inspiration from your efforts have been effective for me. I thank you and the many others who have taken their precious time to make full use of these resources so that people like me can solve some of the mysteries of our boats and enjoy the challenge of the seas.

Tagman, don't know how I missed this one...

The back of the stbd helm side window has a cap on the back end that is held on by a couple of Phillips screws. Remove those, pull the cap off and you will see the access to the top and the stbd hull below. FYI, I ran a couple of wire runs for possible gauges and or lights later on. (Your drop curtain has snaps on this cap so pull the drop curtain back for access to those screws on the outside of the cap).

You do not need to buy a new door. You can get a new latch (even ones with a key lock in them) from places like Jamestown. I'll see what I can find. I am sure you can order the latch with the correct BL serial number... Lock shows as "ARCW" in the bayliner catalog... still looking...

Try one of these... Maybe buy two to get both port and stbd latches to match?

Hi Guys,

We are officially the owners of the 2005 Bayliner 242 Classic. Here is the link to the actual dealers listing http://www.clemonsboats.com/Page.aspx/diid/766142/list/InventoryList/pageId/20473/view/Details/2005-Bayliner-242-Classic.aspx

The marine survey has rated her as "Good" condition with minor issues that dealer is correcting. Once the seatrials are completed, we are hoping to have her out on water with in a couple of weeks.

On the maiden voyage, I will run her from Sandusky, OH to Lorain, OH where she will spend the summer season about 38 miles across Lake Erie. She appears to be in stock configuration. I'm still not 100% certain what type of anchor I should get for her. Lake Erie is generally mud/silt bottom, with my previous boat I used a mushroom type river anchor and it worked well. Something tells me I need a fluke or plow type for this boat, please let me know your opinions.

GrindKore, congrats on the new ride... We can help you spend your money without even feeling guilty...

For mud/sand/silt, you may want a plow type. relatively cheap one would be a bruce style as seen in the below photo. I moved up from a 7.5kg to a 10kg but 7.5kg would do fine for you... Delta is another good one you may be happy with as well. One of the recommendations is to go to your local marina and look around at what the majority of boaters are using... That normally settles the nerves about what to get... All the best... Great boat...

Thank you for the recommendation. If you don't mind sharing where do you store the anchor and line? It appears our model 242 does not have an anchor storage box like the 245 does. Do you just secure the anchor on the roller?

By the way we have been following your threads, and it is inspiring to see the amount of mods you have made to your 2452. This is our first cruiser type boat, before this we owned only bow riders.
