Thumbs up There's light at the end of the tunnel!

Have owned boats here in Florida since 1979 and used to work on them for a living for many many years.
I will finally retire in 2018 and Iím actively looking for that SPECIAL trawler that will take me to scenic island and fun diving locations.

Are you sure that's not a train coming? I think I heard a whistle...

Good luck on your retirement! Be sure to visit St. Brendens Isle before you leave.

I have no clue what type of vessel you are looking for but if I lived on the East Coast, I would have to start by looking at this. I have long found this one interesting. It has been around long enough to indicate that it is likely overpriced but fits the definition of SPECIAL for me. Probably what keeps it from selling.....
