Thanks for all the welcome. Didn't pick up on TF being Trawler Forum. With the statement phrasing, it sounded like something you catch either through physical or fluid contact.

Personal definitions of the word shenanigans

-doing things in life just for the hell of it
-out terrorizing in a dinghy
-something performed under the influence of a beer or two
-maintaining an irresponsible yet legal status in life

Greetings,
Mr. S. I would have thought just from the sound of it "shenanigans" would be of Irish origin but perhaps not so... Online Etymology Dictionary

Very nice lookin' Mainship I, Skinny! We had a Mainship III, and still think of it as a very nice boat.

I would change to a circular staircase to the flying bridge... but then I'm likely considerably older and more rickety than you

Why yes, I own an M880 and an M35a2 (currently for sale so that I can finance a trawler myself [hint! hint!]).

Welcome to the Forum. My brother-in-law and his wife (my sister, of course) have a Mainship 40 at Wilmington and tell me that it is a great area for boating. They are right on the ICW at Carolina Beach, but keep their trawler in a marina. The name of their boat is Harmony, so holler at them if you you see them. :-)

I have yet to gracefully move up and down the flybridge ladder on the Mainship. I am going to placard the underside of the flybridge that says "smash skull here"

Those are some good lookin' MV's. Although I'm not a big fan of the 318, fulltime AWD, unit bearing axle Dodge, they are a nice looking truck. The M35 speaks for itself...and it's a convertible!

What type of trawler are you looking at? You're about 3 hours from me, planning on moving towards the coast?

If I spot Harmony, I'll give them a shout. My opening line will be, "jwnall told me to help myself to the beer in the fridge".

Well, there's a GB 36 woody in your neck of the woods that I am VERY interested in, although I'm not sure I know enough about a wood hull to do what needs to be done. The price is right though!

While not exactly trawlers per se, here are a couple others that we've currently got our eyes on:

I like the 34' Hatteras although no information on the engines along with topside only photos scares me at that price point. I personally would stick to fiberglass as I like to keep my enjoy/work meter more towards the enjoy side of the scale. I'm probably two hours away but if you need a second set of eyes, give me a shout.
