Future trawler owner
I think after looking over hundreds of threads the past several months it's time to introduce myself.
I'm Erika and I grew up boating with my Papa and Uncles in all of their various boats in the Puget sound. Truly my fondest memories. There were several boats but the ones that stick out were a 46ft ketch, a Jefferson Aft Cabin MY and an Eagle 53 Pilothouse.
Now that I have three young kids of my own, I want them to experience being on the water like I was able too. Convincing my husband it's a good idea is another story. He grew up fishing out of Elliot bay (Seattle) with his dad and his memories aren't as fond as mine.
I did convince him to put our names on a waitlist at a marina though, so thats a start. I have a few years to convince him all the money thrown at a boat is worth it. Happy wife, happy life, right?
