Here is a link to what psneeld alluded to above. I think it may land you on the FAQ page which actually directly answers your question regarding which boat is best for the loop. That subject and which anchor is best for the loop is answered in the very best way possible, generically.

Then you could sing it every time you hailed someone on the VHF. I can hear it now!. 'Jolene, Jolene, Jooooleeeennnneee'. :-)

You can never go wrong with a woman's name on the transom.

Something like "Bob" is easier and less likely to cause jealousy.

Yes, I have always been fond of Spoonerisms.
In this case, of course, it was in reference to the coast-hugging fog prevalent in the port where this skipper sailed out of. He would regularly have to wait for a brief break in the fog, and then "duck out" quick to get out in the clear.
- very apt boat name, with a touch of humour. Mind you, you'd want to be sure to get it right when calling it three times fast on the VHF!

My wife and I are newcomers to TF and the world of boating. We are researching and searching for our first trawler boat which can be used on weekend excursions to start, then do the GL in a year or two. The amount of information can be overwhelming and conflicting at times. Any advice and insight can be helpful.
Schuylkill River navigable?

How much you have budgeted for purchase... How big a boat? What accommodations do you seek Number of passengers usually aboard?

Those and other questions answered could help boat type/make suggestions/ recommendations.
