Willard 36 sedan

Took ownership of broadbill this weekend and steamed her from safe harbor Rhode island though the Cape cod canal then onto Gloucester, was a perfect 100 mile shakedown run,ran the Detroit at 1500 getting 7.5 seemed to be her sweet spot,such a rugged hull

Welcome Lostsailor13 - both here and the Willard Boat Owners Group (Peter here, moderator). TrawlerForum is an excellent resource for general technical knowledge. There are a couple other W36 owners (Brooksie and Island Cessna) who are fairly active on this group, as well as a few other Willard owners including Nomad Willy (W30 Nomad - no flybridge), and a few W40's (AKDoug, and Sven who's handle escapes me, also a recovering sailor who recently purchased a W40).

Best success on your new-to-you boat. It's a great choice. And welcome to the Forum

Peter

A Willard 36 with a Detroit, sounds like a good combination.

I WISH mine was a 40, but it's a PH30.... I have a friend looking at two available 40's however. Congratulations on your new boat!
