Hello! New member and happy to be here

Hi everyone,
Thanks for the add to this forum. I just wanted to say hello and how excited we are to have this group as a resource. We have an 18 month plan for living aboard a trawler. 2 months for research regarding financial feasibility; 10 months of saving, searching, and buying the boat; and the last 6 months to gradually move onto it and sell the house. Cheers to the joy of starting the journey!

Thanks to all

I’ve been reading all kinds of threads on this forum for about six months - since I got my boat - and have to remark that it has been SO helpful. The great majority of the posts and responses are interesting, intelligent and informative. Often funny! There are some mighty experienced people out there - very humbling. We have been out a couple of times a week but only in the San Diego Bay/Mission Bay areas. Heading up to
Newport soon (a few postponements including yesterday due to weather conditions) but that will clear up soon and my wife and i are looking forward to it. Meanwhile I’ve gotten a lot of coursework under my belt and with advice from this forum, reasonably outfitted the boat and dink for safety and contingencies. Just wanted ti say a hearty thanks to all. It’s really appreciated.

Bear, remember the old saying "you can lead a horse to water...."

Well apparently you have read some of the info on here and that's to your credit. These nice guys and gals let me hang out here even though I don't have a trawler. Nice folks on here, lots of good info and they are willing to share it. All you have to do is drink.

Thanks so much! You're awesome! We feel very welcome. I'll try to see if I can figure out how to post a pic. Apparently it can't simply be added as a jpg. file.

Boaters who drink is a bit redundant, no?
