I have been looking for a while at the trawler forum, lots of useful information. We don't have a trawler but a homebuilt Bluejacket 25.5 and are just beginning to cruise around in it locally to the Chesapeake area.

Welcome aboard. Cast off the lines and enjoy your boat, and tell us about your cruising.
Cheers

Greetings,
Welcome aboard. If that boat in your avatar is your Blackjacket, why are you looking for a trawler. She looks purdee sweet. As Mr. CC stated, enjoy your boat.

That is our boat in the avatar.
I'm not looking for another boat, I have too much time invested in building this one. Four years and still doing some small modifications.

Welcome, ejds. Nice looking boat. I'd love to see some more pics.
Whose plans did you use?

It looks as much like a trawler as most of us have.

Building your own boat gives you the right to call it whatever you want!

Thanks all,

We are in the Northern Neck pf Virginia right where the Potomac runs into the Bay. The boat is a Bluejacket 25.5 as per plans from Tom Lathrop. One of the reasons to build a boat was the need for a shallow draft boat and is was fun except for all the sanding. The entrance to our creek from the Potomac is very shallow.

At this link are the building pictures. https://www.flickr.com/photos/ejds33/

Welcome to TF. That is a very nice looking boat. I'm not familiar with it and, like the others, would love to see more photos.
