Introducing Skinny Dippin' V2.0

2000 Navigator 420 Classic

Yea, I know... NOT a trawler. However, our lifestyle isn't conducive to a trawler right now. And while I, personally, had to make a few big compromises, she is an beautiful and well cared for boat. 5 GPH at trawler speed, but she will hop up on plane and scoot up to 20-21 knots if needed. Full pilot house lower helm and reasonably new electronics. We already have a list of projects, but nothing major yet. All I need to do is learn to drive a twin screw. Hmmm... I guess I will figure it out.

Here we go again... Back onto the roller coaster... And we wouldn't have it any other way!

Later y'all

Congratulations, what a lovely looking boat. We are looking at something of a similar design to live aboard so will be interested to hear how you like her.

Well done! I'm not familiar with the Navigator name. Where'd you find her? Docking in New Bern, or Oriental?

Man, that's a lot of boat. Looks like someone took a straw and blew up Skinny Dippin I. Anyway, sincere congrats on your new vessel and particularly Bimini!
