Hey there trawler people
 
Hi Everybody My Names Mike. I don't know if I publishing this in the right place but I'm brand new here, I own a 1987 38' President cockpit cruiser with a full upper deck. I'm a captain and boat nut and look forward to sharing and gaining knowledge from all of you:)

Claims of being a trawler owner without accompanying photos are placed in the “unconfirmed” file around here. Welcome to the forum.

Atlantic Sunshine 12-10-2021 03:10 PM

Welcome aboard! By the way, your anchor is too small. Just thought I’d get that out of the way. It will come up at some point.

LOL I'll have to address that:)

And you're supposed to have two engines, not one, or one, not two, whatever, whichever you have, one or two engines, it should be the other! :D

Welcome to the forum!

Well even if it's the right size, it's the wrong type, guarenteed. So is your rode.

No boat, yet
 
I all. My name is Barnett. I'm in the Tampa Bay area and researching a live-aboard for my wife and myself. I've looked at a lot of boats for sale, and they all seem to come from the '70's and seem on the high side for a 50 year old boat (100K? Really???). Is there any such animal as a duel-helmed, 3 or 4 cabin trawler that does over 9kts?

Maybe, if what you want is something that goes over the "hull" or economical speed of a "trawler" is not the right name for what you are looking for but rather a "cruiser," which is what quite a lot of people on TF own. Price-wise, you are in the middle of the worst possible time to buy a boat in the class you are thinking of.

bhfrankel 12-11-2021 12:16 PM

Thanks, won't be until mid to late next year. Must convince the First Mate of the soundness of this plan. Need to see one set of kids in winter (Florida), and the other set in summer (NJ). Maybe do the loop.

rgano 12-11-2021 12:23 PM

bhfrankel, are you considering any strategies like a week-long trawler lease to bring the FM around to your way of thinking?
