Bess and I sold our trawler about 10 months ago after 5 years (long story), but had a trawler very similar to what you are shopping for (Just ask Firefly... He saw it). We live in Cary and would be HAPPY to sit and talk about boats with you. Added bonus is we live in Cary.
If you are interested in chatting up an evening about trawlers, we love to talk about our experiences, come to Cary and we can grab a few beers at Fortnight Brewery or we can come to Big Boss in Raleigh.
PM me and we will try to get together.
