Just coming aboard

Have own a Newport 30 for the last ten years and decided to finally join the rank of the elite. As of today, my wife and I are the proud owners of a beautiful MT34DC.

Just took possession of our new-to- us MT34DC and will be taking her from Pickwick Lake to Hendersonville, TN. Our maiden voyage on the rivers starting hopefully early January. Any advise would be appreciated.

Welcome to the forum! You'll love the rivers. No hurricanes, tides, big waves, and far fewer big patootie sportfishermen making monster wakes. I came here from 15 years of living aboard from Maine to down island. No saltwater corrosion either. It just doesn't get any better. My boat is half the size of my others but I have just as much fun cruising the Tennessee rivers. There are lots of places to drop the hook in quiet little backwaters for the night as you cruise. Have fun! Ben

Thanks, I have a couple of sailing buddies that will be making the trip with me. Would be a blast.

Thanks, the wife is not much help on the crew side but a heck of a first mate.
