Hello

I'm here to investigate trawlers. We are Texas residents currently living in our RV in Anacortes, WA. I was born in WA, so this is like coming home for me. I have always loved being around the water and boats, though we have only owned a small fishing boat long ago while we were living in Illinois. I am currently considering taking some lessons, chartering for a little while, and eventually getting a small trawler to get started with.

Welcome Tim. The PNW is a great boating area. IMO you are heading in the right direction. Maybe you can get a charter that will involve lessons in piloting. That is a great way to start.

Thanks for the welcome. One of our friends is an instructor. I plan to take lessons first and then charter.
