First post

Greetings and salutations. Joined this afternoon and thought I post as well. Don't have a trawler and I do have an express cruiser. Been boating since '86. In the future would like to move to a trawler in the 40 something size. The lure of long range cruising seems attractive. And may it isn't real not sure.

All my previous boats were bought before the net was popular. Now I can do more research and dreaming before I get real serious.

Anyway thanks for participating on this forum. I and others may not post and yet I am seeing and learning a lot as I hang out.

Thanks for the request. I have owned it since new (1997) and I don't have pics!

Gives me something to do, if for no other reason than insurance.

And I thought that I would not have permission to load a pic without posting more and it appears I can attach pics now. (A diff SK site requires at least 5 posts)

So I will shoot some and create a thread.

Thanks for the friendly welcome from all.

Sorry, presumed you joined a year ago. Many here "lurk" for a while before gaining confidence to contribute. Welcome!

I love a Cuddy cabin. Our first "big" boat was a 21' Cuddy. Biggest boat I had ever seen in my life at the time!!

No apologies. It's a 26' footer that I bought new in '97. While I am in the "desert" I have taken it to Catalina, Powell, Havasu and the lakes around Phoenix. Which is a very different kind of boating from all other types I know about. I lived in the Puget Sound area for 12 years and got the addiction there, even though I grew up on the Great Lakes.
