Miatapaul-Hey that buccaneer woudn't be the one I see on craigs for @000 woud it? I think itls sitting in point charles on the hudson River ?? If it is , I was told A guy sailed/motored it in there and tossed the marina the keys and left it there !! Apparently he dreamed of sailing far and wide but after a week or two, reality got the best of him and he went back to land- Ha!

I know the Buccaneers are not the best -to windward boats- but they make great coastal saiors, roomy good headroom and the price is right.
a for the porta-potty, if you can use a bucket, you can use a porta.
As far as the shower goes , we have 2 heads on our Buccaneer 320 one has a shower and we rarely use it, opting to use the shower bag on deck or in the enclosed cockpit.

Buccs' forever !!
when op said bayliner, thunk it was a power boat....buccaneer has some strength--but the ones i see living in mexico--i have seen 2 of em here on pacific side--looked beat to hell--if the boat looked that bad after a pacific coastal hop of 2000 or so miles, what did the people look like when they finished that trip.......i also was able to get to inside the 25 and the 27--these arent only boats i would not take out in weather--weather being 20+ kts, seas, etc....i have been aboard others i would never dream of taking out into seas and weather.
