Hi all!

I wanted to introduce myself! I have been a life time boater and have finally decided to purchase a trawler with hopes that my last few years working can be from the boat. I have been looking for a while now and have pretty much narrowed it down to around 40 feet, a protected prop shaft, and 2 staterooms. I will be going to trawler fest in study this year and hope to get some valuable walkthroughs! Glad to be here and I'm looking forward to a new adventure!

Welcome Betsy! Good to hear you're planning to attend TrawlerFest, i think it is a great way to see a lot of different style boats and perhaps refine your list of selection criteria. You might also consider a couple of the TFest seminars while you're there. We went to several and they certainly helped guide our search process.
Good luck and if you're so inclined, keep the forum up to date on your search...
