Hi all, I'm Manuel Farinas. Retired living in Dunedin, Florida. I currently own and sail a 2003 Catalina 310, which is currently for sale, since my wife and I have decided to upgrade to a motor boat, be it a sedan or a trawler. Our reason for this is that we now need a larger vessel with a good sized berth (queen size preferred) and a separate stand up shower. When we were in our early 30's, we built a Bruce Roberts 36 sail boat and lived/cruised aboard for two years.

Welcome to the Trawler Forum Manuel! We are currently next door in Tarpon Springs. If you would like to tour a Bayliner 4788 or 46 ft Jarvis Newman, give me a shout.

Welcome aboard TF

Good luck with the sale and search...
spend the available time to think long & hard about how you will use the "new" boat and what you want / don't need.
