Ahoy there! Can't live on my current boat much longer, I'm here to check out what all is involved Trawler ownership.
I've owned "Cool Beans", a Ranger 33 sailboat, for over 5 years. I've lived on her for a bit over 2 years. My third winter is coming up and I'm not looking forward to it in this boat.
Hard to heat (impossible in deep winter), getting small, dark, no room for guests, etc.. . .I won't bore you with the details right now
So far, plan A is to research trawlers/motor yachts and see if I can afford a reasonable level of comfort vs cost vs usability. I enjoy sailing, but I'm not sure I could live on another, even if it was bigger. I've been reassured by other MB owners in the live aboard FB group that I will get over it
Plan B is to buy a house. . .but I'm not concerned with plan B at the moment. . .
Also by joining, I'm hoping to pester people to give me tours of their boats
I live at a marina in Little Creek, and I'm willing to drive a bit. . .just throwing that out there!
