Learning

Hi Everyone,
I'm considering purchasing a trawler. My father is a shrimper but I have not spent as much time on the boat as I should have. I'm hoping to learn more via this forum. Everyone seems very cordial and knowledgeable.

Welcome.

I am sure you have picked up a lot over time from your Dad's activities. I always learn a lot from this crew.

Planning on just having fun. Thought about at some point in the future (after we learn a LOT more) possibly attempting the Great Loop.
