Hello Y'all

Hello Y'all! New member to the forum here from Mississippi. I grew up on the water and had a boat before I had an auto. Fished offshore for years, gave that up in my mid thirties. I'm an avid sailor now sailing the MS. Sound in my 37 Kirie Elite. I'm really thinking about retirement down the road and doing the Big Loop with my wife. Sailing is still fun, but as I get older its harder on the body for long lengths on the water. I really like the idea of a trawler as I take two weeks a year now and cruise/sail to Florida. Looking forward to listening in on forums and asking questions. Fair Winds Y'all
