Hello everyone! I am obviously new to this forum and look forward to engaging in some of the discussions. There is a lot of good information on this forum and I can't wait to sink my teeth into some of the topics.

My name is Mark and I currently have a Mainship 34 Mark I trawler (as many of you know it's called a trawler because of the single screw and slow cruising speeds). Therefore I am particularly interested in connecting with members that have similar boats to learn more about updating some of its systems and keeping her afloat.

More to come as I familarize myself with the various topics.

Bye for now....

Mark

Welcome aboard Mark. You'll find several owners of your model vessel here. This place is a wealth of info. Just don't ask what kinda anchor you need! Ben

Welcome aboard!
Tego is right, if you ask about anchors, you'll find what ever you have now is too small, it's the wrong kind and you don't have enough chain.

Another subject where you will always be wrong is the subject of guns. If you carry a gun on your boat, either you're crazy or your gun is too small, the wrong kind and you don't have enough ammo.
