Hello Trawler Forum: Thank you for allowing me to join your forum. I have been reading and learning here for a little while and thought I should join up. I find it very entertaining and informative.

At this point in time I am in the 'dreaming' stage (insert picture of 120 ft yacht here). I have been around boats all my life (53) as my dad bought a lake cottage when I was one year old. Many summers were spent working at a local marina and I absolutely love boats. But I was born and raised a 'laker' and the trawler life is brand new to me and perhaps a bit daunting. I am trying to keep my dreams realistic and the information provided here by you folks is very helpful indeed.

So thanks once again and a special thanks to Lori who helped me sign in! Pete

Also, boatpoker, thanks for the private message. I am unable to respond directly until I have more posts I think. That link you sent was excellent (pcmarinesurveys.com). Maybe a bit hair raising in parts but very valuable info. Just what I need at this time. Pete

Welcome! I grew up in NH, boating on Great Bay, around Portsmouth and the Isles of Shoals.

Jobe,

Welcome to the forum!

Perhaps your PM was blocked since it contained a hyperlink to boatpoker's commercial website. If you delete the hyperlink until you accrue 10 posts, you should be able to PM. After 10 posts, you can post and PM with hyperlinks.

Thank you for the welcome Art, Carolena (NH is still here for you), and FlyWright. I guess 10 posts is my new goal. I gotta think of some things to say.
so much to read here.......

Greetings,
Mr. J. Oh, I don't think you'll have any problems thinking up things to say. Since you've been lurking for a while and reading you probably have the correct impression that there is a broad range of opinions/expertise. Don't be afraid to ask questions and if you can do ME a personal favor, don't start off your question with "This may be a dumb question". There is no such thing. We all started from square one....well, you started at AGE one and I fully understand your love for water and boats. I think I got involved (with my dad as well) in boating when I was 3 probably. So, ask away.

So then, what kind of questions do dumb people ask?

Mr. Spy. The same sort that "smart" people ask. Neither knows the answer so they ask.

Awwww com-on Hoppy... give RT a break... he's not really nuts - just a bit off center! But, looking at this forum objectively (however, some members must be viewed subjectively - lol) there are few and far between of us here who are not a bit daft! Or, amidst the pleasure boating world, might I term that a bit short of draft??

Anyway, viewing the context of this website and its handful of regular contributors, there is an enjoyably pronounced lack of sanity amongst our microcosm of world population. A lack of sanity, if I may add, that invigorates the very essence of why it is worth being alive! Pleasure boating that is!!

Happy Boating Daze... Everyone! - Art

We all own boats. Lack of sanity goes without saying.
