After 55 years on a sailboat

Yep, never thought I'd be one of the sail to steam sorts but here we are beginning our search for a Trawler. We are liveaboard boaters in Central America and can no longer ignore the huge benefits to living on a trawler like platform. But so many things to learn. Hull shapes / single screw vs. twin / up galley vs down galley. etc. I'll be doing alot of reading over the next few months and picking your brains as well.

Mark Pierce should be along soon to show you that one does not need to abandon sails masts and such to enjoy the dark side. Welcome

I'm tired of fast moves, I've got a slow groove, on my mind.....
