Banjers have a lot of glass down low. There are (were) two of them in Gibsons, BC, with a Fisher 34 in the same marina. Considerable difference in the design.

But I'm a sucker for a nicely restored Fisher.

Way back at the beginning of this thread there was a reference to the Northern Marine Starr, which has made the crossing, and other world girding adventures.

She is renamed and on the market for anyone interested.

Just read through this thread. Super disappointed as I was intrigued by the title. Iíd love to do this trip someday.

I think the folks challenging the OP on how, who and with what largely offered useful suggestions and questions that should be considered and answered before a journey like this.

The folks with injections on why seem really small to me. Just because it isnít on your list not sure why youíd ever attack anotherís.

OP- I spend a fair amount of my free time in the mountains with some incredibly skilled adventurers. Not to get all Mallory here, but why isnít ever really a question. However, when challenged with hard questions about skill, technique and tools the prepared are contemplative. The unprepared and unrealistic are defensive.

My two cents.

The why comments appear to be related to the fact that while Hawaii is a great place to visit on land, it is a equally unimpressive place to be on a boat. I believe most probably felt there are other places to go that are better cruising grounds... hence why go THERE?

He answered that question, albeit with some unexpected tersness, on post #3. Because he wants to.

Hi,

Very fine trawler, especially in the color of the blue Hull and white pilot house and other, something like my tug.

TWISTED, whatís wrong with wood boats? Iíve heard rumors that one or two have crossed oceans in the last thousand years

Just watched a video on two brothers who bought a 44' sailboat in Honolulu and sailed to Port Washington. A bit of rain, cloudy skies and near-windless conditions around the N. Pac. High, but nothing any reasonably intelligent person couldn't deal with.

This isn't a trip around Cape Horn!!!

After taking all this in, I've concluded that trawlers just aren't the right type of vessel for what I want to do. I want to travel long distances, - passages - and as has been opined, a motorsailer, or sailing cat will go farther, and possibly faster than a trawler, cost less to acquire, "feed" and maintain. We'll get to Hawaii, then Tahiti, or, if we buy a boat in the Med, cross the Atlantic, though the big ditch and then Tahiti and surrounds.

I'll gain experience as I go, but there is no doubt that I will make it - lots and lots of people do. I have a reasonable amount of sailing experience, understand the principles and safe practices and will practice in local waters first.

If you HAVE to ask "why", there is no point in asking "why" because you'll never understand. Some here get it, many don't. For them, green is good enough, but for me, blue will do!!!!

Fair winds, following seas, and to those who offered good advice on boat/engine choice, and boat-related advice such as stabilizers, my gratitude is yours. For those who felt they had to go into the weeds.... well we'll leave it at that.

Dude. You can't have your first thread go 190-some replies and then just bugger off.

Buy a boat and prove the forum wrong. Motorsailers are just trawlers with sticks on them, anyways. Auscan is still here; he has a motorsailer.

TF needs some liquidity in the thread content. Contrarians make for thread hits!

Marin's been gone for years. That man was downright eristic at times and I miss him dearly.

Much like my tug as well; actually exactly the same hull paint, Sterling Flag Blue.

But I erred in referring to it as the renamed Starr; it is actually the renamed Starship.

exactly right. Internet is only 10% fact, and 90% entertainment. And the rule is "once past 5 pages, the facts go down, and the entertainment % goes up".
