Greetings from Southern Maryland

I'm a long time boater and ready to start looking for the "retirement" boat. Just decommissioned my last boat due its old age/repair costs (1989 Carver Montego 2557) and am starting the research/education/search for something to explore the Chesapeake Bay and perhaps hit the ICW.
I've had both power and sailboats and think the trawler life will be my next phase of boating. Let the fun begin!

Tom

Hi Tom. I'm also in Southern Maryland at Tall Timbers marina. I believe there are a couple of trawlers here that are for sale by the owners - a Marine Trader Sundeck and a Californian. If you want to look at them I can get the owners contact info for you. Or if you just want to talk about trawlers let me know. I went through about 6 months of looking at trawlers before I settled on my Jefferson 42. I recently brought her up from Daytona Beach and learned a lot on that trip. Good luck on your search.

Small world! Still looking at the various trawler styles available and the differences between manufacturers. I'd greatly appreciate if you could PM the info on the FSBO boats at Tall Timbers.

Thanks,
Tom

Welcome, and good luck with your search. My boat is just across the bridge from you at Calvert Marina. I've been there 5 years and have been happy with the marina and the slip I'm in. Where you'll keep the bigger (?) boat is an important consideration, but there are many options near you.

Greg.

I'm thinking your little Carver was gas, that might be part of the high maintenance cost issue. Look for a diesel next time.
