Rick,

You should have no problems at all in Florida with starting the engine. I am in San Francisco and have never had a problem winter or summer. Modern diesels with higher pressures do not have glow plugs.

There are no specific problems with the T3500 2001 that I know of except for a potentially tight rudder. My boat had the LP gas regulator and solenoid shut off valve (in the LP gas locker) plumbed incorrectly, but if the boat you are looking at had this problem it would have been fixed by now.
