New to the East Coast

I moved to the East Coast from Southern California where I had been sailing for several years. Shopping for a trawler and plan to do the Great Loop and then ??? Currently working with a broker on a Prairie 36 and will post a thread in that area hoping for some feedback.

Welcome to the forum! Enjoy the search for your new boat!

I'm tired of fast moves, I've got a slow groove, on my mind.....
I want to spend some time, Not come and go in a heated rush.....

Already posted on your other thread, but welcome!

We're looking at taking our Prairie 36 on the Downeast Loop, but my understanding is that it has already done the Great Loop with a previous owner.

I've come to believe that this boat was designed specifically with the Great Loop in mind. IMHO, you couldn't pick a better platform.
