From Hunter 35 to Mainship 34
Hello to the Community. Like many, my wife and I have waved goodbye to our sailing days and are now gladly joining the trawler cruising world. Spent many years cruising the upper/mid Chesapeake and then did the ICW trek south, eventually settling in Port Charlotte, FL. We recently got a 1984 MS Mark III....and have spent the past 6 months getting up close and personal with the glories of the Perkings multi-manifold and attendant large pieces of iron. I must admit, with my head in the bilge, my thoughts have wandered back to the clean days of white sails and simple systems. But, with some ideas I have already gotten from TF posts, we have overcome and will soon be setting out.
