Welcome aboard! (I would add the required "eh?", but I have not, in 61 years, come across another Canadian who actually talks like that, LOL!)
I am also in the process of researching and hopefully acquiring a trawler.
I live just north of you, on the north shore of Lake Huron. I used to keep several of my sailboats in the Midland/Penetang area, and camped on Beausoleil Island for many years, so I know the area quite well.
Georgian Bay and the North Channel ......... in my opinion, some of the best cruising grounds in the world!
Perhaps when we both have our trawlers, we shall bump into each other, but not literally!
