Congrats Dave...

Next step - we need to see some pics but I'm guessing many of us will be drooling (more than normal)

You could get a sailing dinghy so you won't be completely out of the wind.
Welcome to the other side by the way!

Sincere congrats, Dave. We're always in need of another trawler we can argue over, and you've now been put on the list of "provocateers".

Congrats indeed! I made the switch from sail (Catalina 36) to trawler just a year ago. I'm sure you going to love it.

Have fun!

Nice choice, Dave! Congrats! How about an introductory video?

Guess it might be time for a new avatar, huh?

Thanks again all.

Hawgwash, I only strayed from two issues that I thought were important (but decided they weren't). One was that I didn't want a fly bridge. I will have one. Second was that I wanted side decks, I won't. On both counts, I am perfectly happy at this point.

Maybe some pics once we get the boat. Hopefully this weekend if all goes perfectly smoothly (what are the odds?).

Now all you have to do is learn a whole new language, change up your profile and rework your fee schedule.

...and get used to your sailing buddies asking you "wow, so how much fuel do you burn?"

Ask them how much the new genoa/main/kite cost. Sails are not cheap.

That is just cruel Bruce. I bought a new assymetric a few years ago. I don't ever want to calculate the cost per use on that beautiful sail.

Yes, but it will stop them niggling about the cost of fuel, which with many "trawlers" is not such a big thing.
Congratulations on your purchase. The good thing about an open mind is you can adjust your "must haves" for other pluses a particular boat presents. May you enjoy happy cruising and good times onboard.
