Another newbie

Hi Group, sailor for over 40 years and I bought my first small trawler last spring, a Rosborough RF-246 with twin Yamaha 150's. Had a fun first season on the Canadian side of eastern Lake Ontario/1000 islands area, put on 95 hours and did 850 nautical miles. Wish we were retired, I can do this all year long!

Al

there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats

Welcome Al! Sure can relate to your enjoyment of small boat cruising. We did 24 summers in trailer boats, first in a C-Dory 22 and then after I retired a 26-footer. Traveling the west coast's Inside Pasage on up as far as Glacier Bay. Retirement sure enables longer trips- love it!
