Getting back in after 35yrs

Yep. Retired after driving truck for 35 years. Grew up in Annapolis MD. Crewed on an 81' Trumpy for a few years traveling the east coast. Lived aboard my Cal 2-27 for several years before sailing down to FL. So now I am retired and wife and I are looking to Loop. Main residence in FL. Summer on Delmarva. Have a '78 Kencraft 20' c/c and a '95 Grady-white 26' Islander. Now it is time for a trawler. Looking forward to connecting with other members. Thanks.

Hey Robert - welcome to TF.

Of of the long time members of TF just listed what apprears to be a nice, fairly priced 46-foot Cheoy Lee Trawler capable of long distance travel. Located in Fort Lauderdale.

FYI - I have no connection except as a casual observer.

His original TF post pre-listing

https://www.trawlerforum.com/forums/...-fl-63438.html

And subsequent Yachtworld post.

Good luck

Peter

Welcome to the forum! Had a home in Salisbury, MD for 30 years and did some sport flying out of Lake Wales in Fl. Lots on nice spring and fall cruising on the Chesapeake, especially the Eastern shore. The Loop is a great trip.

Welcome, from another Eastern Shoreman.

Greenbackville. Its been some years since I was there. That was back in the day when folks were trying to breathe new life into Captain's Cove. Its a nice quiet corner of the world. Hope to see you on the water one day.

Ted, How many times have you completed the Loop solo? Twice?

Just once. I really enjoy the Great Lakes, so this is my third trip up the Hudson. Will be focusing on the Rideau and Trent Severn canals in Canada and Lake Superior this summer. Hope to spend some time in all 5 Great lakes plus Georgian Bay and the North Channel this summer.
