In 2001 we converted MV Lifeline, a commercial fishing boat, to a power passagemaker, setting off in 2005 from Brisbane in Australia, through Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia to Thailand, Borneo, the Philippines and other parts of Southeast Asia. This site tells what we did and how we are doing it - conversion costs, cruising costs, anchorages and lots more. We know how difficult it is to get information about converting a trawler, cruising long distance in a motor boat and where to travel (by boat) in South East Asia
These are of the MV Eileen Farrell a Louisiana shrimp trawler converted to cruising boat by Lorenzo and Joyce a few years ago I believe she is about 65' They have cruised the Gulf and Atlantic Coasts of the US then down to Central America now in Panama.
