It certainly is. My brother & sister in law visit us every year and love to go boating and fish. They're in for a real treat on "Sandpiper" but are sad at "Seahorse's" sale.
We all loved our 8 years on" SeaHorse II."

Walt,
SeaHorse was almost like a friend as you can see from the sentiments in the above posts and a friend passing is never a good thing but really ... she's been sorta gone for some time now.

Does this mean I'll never see that beautiful polished SS Claw again? When you posted pics of cleats ect I was always amazed at how nice SeaHorse looked.

Gourmet Cruiser?
It could actually be said you may have had a gourmet Trawler then and now you have a gourmet cruiser. One could think perhaps nothing was "gained" but WOW ... look at that beautiful big white swan. Gourmet indeed!

The 32's speed at 2 gals/hr? About 3.5 to 5 knots. These boats are not fuel miserly vessels. They are well built (heavy) sea going boats.

Thanks very much, that puts some numbers on their economy. I did read comments on the forum that the hull was very good in difficult conditions, and used a quite bit a fuel at slow speeds; I think that's the price you have to pay for seaworthy design.

Compromises, compromises!

Hi Walt,
We just joined the trawler forum today. We saw SeaHorse II for sale on YachtWorld but I guess we are a day late. We are in Florida until tomorrow. We flew down here from Orange County to look at a Trawler, but it didn't work out.
I guess we should have stayed closer to home!

Keep me posted with a PM as you never know what could happen. Boats have fallen out of contract for many reasons.

Congratulations on the sale Walt... SeaHorse II is a beauty. I love her samson post -- tall and sleek. The new OA is a lovely girl. Enjoy....

Much happiness afloat to you and your bride.

Not final yet! Trying to iron out a few issues but not sure if we can do it.
If we can't, there's another candidate waiting in the wings.

Maybe I'm a little different, but I would think it would be more fun emptying it.
