Want To Say Hi.
Let me introduce us. I am Chuck* and Susan is my wife of 18 years. We lived aboard and extensively cruised our Mariner 40 Ketch Sea Trek for 17 years. A lot of that is chronicled on our posted sites. We have put tens of thousands of mile under that keel until we recently made the decision to sell her. Some folks may know us through some of our writings in Soundings Magazine, Good Old Boat, Sail, Blue Water Sailing and Southern Boating, although we have not published with Southern for a while. Believe it or not, all of the island and all of the beaches were starting to look the same. We need a new perspective on our cruising. It broke our hearts to sell Sea Trek but we are almost over it and working hard on Beach House our new to us
*Marine Trader 34. Our future cruising plans will be a return to the Bahamas after an 8 year absence, then if all goes well and the body holds together we would like to do the loop. We are MTOA members and post on the T&T board and came here to learn all we can about this trawler thing. I am a marine service tech and have been for 35 years. I have 50 years boating experience and Susan about 30. Susan is a social worker, what can I say, I still love her. we are currently in South Carolina outfitting the boat and if anyone passes through Beaufort stop and say hi. I think that about cover is. Safe voyaging to all. Chuck
