Good Day to all of you

Good Day,

I just would like to introduce myself: My name is Lars Kessel and I live in Cape Town, South Africa. We (my wife and I) came here from Germany in 2000. Currently we own a Beneteau 35 ft sailboat and enjoy it very much. I stumbled over Trawlers by chance browsing the internet and I like them the more I dig out. I am not sure if Cape Town waters are the perfect playground for a trawler but right now I like the appeal of having a home on the water.

Cheers Lars

Hello Lars, welcome to the forum sir. A dear friend is originally from Cape Town, married a Russian gal and lives in New York now. He has fond memories of sailing there too.

Good luck in your pursuits.

Lars, welcome to TF. As a member who doesn't own a trawler, let me say that the people on here have a vast amount of knowledge and don't mind if social climbers (like me) hang out with them!
