New

Hi, we just bought our first Trawler (used) new to us. We are excited as we have planned for this a long time.


We have sold the farm and picking up or boat in Stuart, FL and moving to our home marina in Fort Myers.

We have found a place that actually advertises live aboard fees.

Look forward to learning a lot here.

Ron

Welcome to the forum! Lots of cruising opportunities out of Fort Myers. Currently heading across the Okeechobee waterway to Stuart and then up to Fort Pierce for the Trawler Forum Rendezvous.

Change of Mind

We decided after reviewing the survey and engine survey to run not walk away from this boat and get our escrow back.

Well worth expense of surveys and haul out fees.

No worries we are on the trail of another one. This one a 1989 42' Jefferson Sundeck.

There is a reason for everything! I have a friend that had a Jefferson. I was impressed the couple of times was on his boat. Good luck 👍.

Thanks

Thank you. We learned long ago that you don't fall in love with a boat until you own it.
