Well, I am officially the owner of an older trawler! *I am still not sure I know what I've gotten myself into but figure worse case it will just take a ton of money to make things right! *
We were supposed to have closed last week but had some things come up that we want to check out and verify, etc. *So we now own the happiest little 36 Monk/MMC I've seen. *She needs some exterior refit but we are very excited. *Best part was propping my feet up at the lower helm with an icy cold beer in hand (about 98 degrees outside!!!). *Actually, the best part was this evening when we had the kids and my wife and I and the puppy we got the kids earlier this summer...all hanging out telling jokes, laughing, and having fun together. *LOVE family time on the water!!! *
You all have been very welcoming with all of my questions over the last week or two. *I am sure I will have many more questions as I proceed with some of the work we have planned for her. *Until now we've owned newer/faster boats....had a deck boat, then bought a 2003 Cruisers 3372 express, then a 2005 Silverton 38 Sport Bridge. *We just sold the silverton this past winter and have been shopping pretty much since then. *A slower, older, classic trawler is just more our style I think and we just absolutely love her all teak interior. *We currently boat on Lake Lanier just outside of Atlanta, GA but will ultimately be bringing her to the TN River to do more seasonal cruising and who knows, with any luck, we'll get to do the great loop!!! *We just love being on the water and spending time with our children on the boat and this little trawler is going to be great for us I think.
Anyway- exciting day today since we finally closed on our new ride- now the work begins!! *
