Landlubber patiently waiting until I can buy a trawler

Hello! I don't currently own a boat, but someday I will (the fates willing of course). I'm not a complete noob - my parents owned a 30' houseboat on the Upper Mississippi and before that a 16' runabout. They sold the houseboat off though before I was able to take it out on my own though so my experience is somewhat limited.

I lust after a new Nordhavn - those reverse rake windows look awesome, but given what my budget is likely to be that's not going to happen. There are lots of other great looking trawlers out there to choose from though, including lots of used Nordhavns!

Welcome. We went over 25 years landlocked between boats. Patience is worth it

Focus, If a boating life is what you want. There are many distractions for your time and money. Some temporally pleasant.
