Learning

Hi Everyone,
I'm considering purchasing a trawler. My father is a shrimper but I have not spent as much time on the boat as I should have. I'm hoping to learn more via this forum. Everyone seems very cordial and knowledgeable.

Welcome to the forum and good luck with your search. How do you intend to use your trawler?

Welcome.

I am sure you have picked up a lot over time from your Dad's activities. I always learn a lot from this crew.

Planning on just having fun. Thought about at some point in the future (after we learn a LOT more) possibly attempting the Great Loop.
