    Before I was driving boats, I was driving school buses and CAT's in the 1950's. I commercially fished the GL, then I started rebuilding diesel engines - so I saw what happens to them when not taken care of properly. Twenty years in the RCAF as - you guessed it - airframe mechanic, then I went to marine diesel mechanic school in the 1970's. Went to Amsterdam - studied hard and got my 100T license and then 1000T a few years after. Still tinkered with DD's and CATS making them work better, not harder. My brother, Dad, Uncles and Granddad all built boats - mainly from wood and steel. All custom work. You won't see or find a single one in NA. They were all delivered by me to EU, SA and the ME. The present 28m ocean tug I own outright. I custom designed it to work better, use less fuel and provide a steady income for my family and my 13 member crew.

    Hi, my husband and I are beginning our search for our retirement home. We currently have a Mainship trawler and are looking for an up grade to life aboard in the future. We love the euro trawler style and flow. Our budget is limited so we are looking at older models that are well maintained with a good quality rep.
