Trawler Newbie's

My wife and I took the plunge at the end of March and brought home a new addition to the family. With the purchase of Makin Memories, a 1987 41' President Double Cabin MY, we have moved closer to realizing our cruising dream. We have already met and listened to great stories from folks traveling and living on their boats and cannot wait for the "next step".

Trawler Forum came highly recommended by those living the dream every day. It is our hope that we can learn and also add our experiences to this community in a meaningful way.

Nice boat. Also new trawler owner early March. This is a great place to communicate with people who know what they're talking about and are helpful.

Welcome aboard. We move onto our new home this Friday. We'll be watching to see how y'all adjust. We're anxious to get through the 'orientation' part where we figure out what really gets to stay and what has to go. We're learning a lot from forum members. Thanks all for a great resource.
