New guy

Hi,
My name is Janne. Me and my wife Annika recently bought a C&L 45 Pilothouse Trawler 1980. I work with marine electronics. As this is our first Trawler I Googled around and ended up here. Hope to find lots of useful information about Trawlers from you guys;-) We're located in Stockholm Sweden.

Very nice boat and welcome aboard! I find that following posts about almost any subject gives me information I didn't have and options I didn't know or consider. There is a lot to learn here, even if you have experience!

Welcome aboard. Yes you will find lots of useful information and lots of opinion sometimes conflicting. No free lunch ,you will have to do a little work to sort through it to come up with what's best for you.

Yes, welcome aboard the board. That is one very nice boat. In our climate I'd want 4' more in the cockpit maybe, but overall, that is the best layout in my view. Pilothouse, (no superfluous flybridge - not needed - personal view), roomy saloon, rear cockpit and really nice proportions.

Welcome, you have a beautiful boat, enjoy her!
My previous boat, SPIRIT a Camano 31, pictured below was bought and shipped to Varberg, Sweden in 2008 by a friend who lives there. Maybe you will see Spirit & Capt. Ivan on the water one day, though I believe Varberg is a long way from Stockholm.

Pictured in Louisiana and in Sweden on trailer ready to be "winterized"

Thanks for the attention! Otium is currently winterized and tucked away on the slipway. We haven't had the opportunity to enjoy her on the water yet as we bought her on land, and we do have a looong winter here:-(. She's in good shape for a 35 year old lady though. As with most boats with a few years there are plenty of work to be done but nothing critical. First thing while up is to replace all brass thru hull fittings with bronze fittings. Then we'll just use it and find out what needs to be done. Some more pictures below.

Ok, my mistake, it does have a minimal flybridge, which I mistook for a dry exhaust false stack in the 1st photo. I guess for fair weather sailing and some manoeuvring it comes in handy, but I doubt you'll drive from up there often. Not with beautiful wheelhouse like that. If I had it here in Oz. I'd be tempted to clear the top and install lots of solar panels and have no generator, but in your latitude that might not be the way to go.
Either way she looks very nice, and probably ideal for your cruising grounds.
