Greetings from Montana!

We are new to trawlers. We are looking to purchase a Trawler with a min of two staterooms. We are joining so that we can learn all we can, so that we make the best decision possible in our boat purchase. We are looking to do some island hopping, and the Great Loop. Please feel free to share any and all great advice.

Welcome to the Forum. Montana is one of the most beautiful states in the U.S., breathtaking landscapes !

May I ask where are you planning to keep your boat ?

Best whishes

Welcome to the forum! Lots of good reading in the archives. Try a search for "Great Loop" threads.

Welcome aboard!! We are out of Montana. By Three Forks. We keep the boat in Portland for now. Hoping to finish things then start for Mexico one of these seasons. You'll find folks are very knowledgeable, friendly & speak their minds.

I was almost born in Three Forks! Mom made it to California before my commencement. Do you remember Driscol's Bar and Grill?

No, I dont. We moved here in 2000, and live near the Capital city of Helena.
