Hello all, I have been lurking around the forum for the past several month's and finally decided to register and make my presence known.
My wife and I are live aboard supporters (stay on the boat a few nights a week) down on the Foss waterway in Tacoma Washington. We are interested in meeting and cruising with other boaters from the area and are very excited for the upcoming boating season. We were previously sailboat owners and are now dabbling on the "dark side" with a 40' roberts trawler. I have searched both the web and this side for countless hours in search of more information on our boat but have had little success. If anyone has info on the robert's boats I would greatly appreciate it.
The boat was a gift from my wife's grandfather and it's life is fairly well documented in the paperwork we found on the boat. She had sat unused in LaConner for over 10yrs when we brought her to her new home. This past year has been a very exciting crash course in "big" boat ownership...so many new systems to learn and maintain!
Here's to meeting new friends and fellow trawler enthusiasts! I love how large the living space is in the boat, but the only thing missing is a sail...oh well I guess I'll have to get my sailing fix in on other people's boats
