Five years of "trawler curious" is over

I have been lurking and questing here for a little over five years. After lots of looking, learning, and one near miss (thankful for that) we have ended up with a trawler "style" boat. I am a long time sailboat owner/operator and my wife is a non-boater (you see where this is headed). The "new" boat is a 1980 Gulfstar 44 MC with lots of potential and plenty of project to go around. Ironically, back when the keel was laid (mold prepped) for my new boat I was a 3-4 miles away taking sailing and celestial navigation courses. I will continue to race and teach sailing at the local YC but we now look forward to sharing a life on the water.

Welcome and congrats on the new boat! As a long-time lurker you should know to post pics as soon as possible.

Whereabouts in E Central Florida? Where's the boat kept?

Hailing port will be Palm Bay, FL. We haven't chosen a marina in the area yet.

Congrats on the new boat and good luck with the "projects"

Hope to see you on the water we are just across the IRL from you in MB. If things go well we will have a new boat in March

Nice boat. We would have bought one 2 years ago, but our boatyard could not haul over 30000 pounds.
