Hi, Im Rich from Pittsburgh Pa. I'm 52 a former Marine and retired airline. I'm in the process of "unloading" all of my worldly burdens, you know; house, mortgage, small boats, lawn tractor, ladders, property tax, the stuff I can't stand anymore.
I'm settled on buying a Trawler in $50K range and eventually sailing the Great Loop.
I look forward to gleaning as much information as possible about Trawler living.
Thanks in advance.

Research is the fun part. Enjoy learning all about this lifestyle, and visit plenty of boats- you'll soon find out what you like (and don't like) and will learn what is right for you.
