I've been lurking for some time, but am looking forward to finding and buying a Trawler soon. Two challenges: Budget and Headroom/Berth size (I'm 6'4" tall).
Been looking at the 1997 to 2008 Mainship line. I like the 400 but can better afford the 390/350. I love some of the features of the older TT's that are in my price range, but I am a bit scared that the purchase price will just be a down payment and I am not fond of exterior teak ... My hope is to spend a few years getting familiar with my trawler doing some upgrades and local trips and then head out for some longer term adventures.
I spent a lot of time on Sailboats in Annapolis growing up but I can't get a sailboat to my dock due to bridge clearance issues so, it's a STINKPOT for me!
I have had quite a few boats through the years but I am ready to slow down a bit!
