I was concerned...

...about getting my wife aboard with the whole "trawler thing". She is a lifelong sailor who has crossed the Atlantic a couple times, the Pacific once and sailed in and out of Bermuda in the order of 20 times, all by sailboat, I had my doubts.
Clearly, based on this picture taken on a little delivery of an American Tug 395, everything is going to be fine!

She's probably a bit like my wife Bruce. Prefers to go faster.

I think the reality is that this girl simply likes being outside and on the water!
It is always when she is happiest.

That is my favorite Monty Python skit, for obvious reasons...

My wife has concerns about now going considerably slower ( we had a performance sailing cat previously)
But she is very happy about getting back on the water, not having to work it and the increased levels of comfort that we should have.
