Hello

I知 new to this forum and to trawlers. Decided I知 no longer a sailor. Now trawlers fit my aspirations of being on the water with my family. (Wife, children, grandkids) I知 waiting for a 1986 Universal 36 foot Europa trawler to be hauled, inspected, and tried before making a decision to buy. I am just starting to learn more about trawlers and am looking forward to the experience of owning one.

Welcome to TF, and good luck with your purchase. Just don't set your heart too much on any one boat until after a survey.

Thank you Pete,

Hard to keep my desire to own in check when looking at boats. I will heed your advice and let the more experienced eye of the inspector and others guide me.
