Trawler Hunting

Hi, My name is Alan and I am new to this site. I live in Vancouver BC and am looking to get a trawler for coastal cruising. I grew up on the south shore of Long Island NY and lived on waterfront property. My days were spent boating throughout the years. As a kid I clammed in the great south bay for the summers. However, my career took over and now I want to get back into boating. I have been checking out various boats in the 40 foot range. My wife and I would like to explore the boating lifestyle together, she is all for it. I also have 3 adult children who could also enjoy. I have looked at a couple of Nordhavn 46, an Eagle 53 pilothouse and Grand Banks 36 and 42. I am taken by the pilothouse design and of course have read "Voyaging Under Power" so am also looking at Krogen as well. I am 61 years old and am starting to think about enjoying life rather than working so much! Any comments and suggestions are much appreciated. I am glad to be able to share with you on this site as I progress through my new boating journey.
