Visiting Bellingham Suggestions
Hello, High desert dwellers (Albuquerque) that are going to Bellingham, WA in a week.
To get some training we are doing a ASA 101, 103, and 104 week long cruise and train course with San Juan Sailing July 21-27. Yes, it is a sailing course and our ultimate goal is a motor vessel, but it seems ASA has more formalized training than we can find on power boats. I believe at this point we will get good training that can cross over in the future.
We are working toward our retirement plans for March 2020. When the time comes we are going to be searching for a motor vessel of yet to be determined type. Most likely 36-50 trawler. In 2020 our plan is to move to Counce, TN on Pickwick Lake.
We will finish our course on Friday July 27 at noon and have the rest of that day, Saturday, and part of Sunday. We would like tour some various styles of trawlers while we have the weekend in Bellingham.
Can anyone suggest the best way to go about getting to check out some different styles of trawlers (Sedan, Aft Cabin, Sundeck, etc) both from the outside and inside? We are not looking to buy right now or on the west coast so not sure how receptive a seller or broker might be. Also not looking for a ride just want to see layouts.
