Hello,
I am from the south Puget Sound, and finally pulled the trigger on an older trawler. Took a gamble on the boat, as it was sitting in someones back yard and hasn't been in the water in a few years. Last week I launched out of Olympia after some fiberglass repairs, new through hull fittings and a fresh coat of bottom paint. She ran great! The Lehman fired up with no issues and she is finally sitting at her moorage on Harstine Island.
She still has a lot of work to be done, and she wont ever be the nicest boat in the harbor, but I am excited I can give my kids the adventures she will open up for us.
Thank you all for creating a community to share this advature!
Ty

Welcome aboard. Glad the chance you took on the boat has worked out well for you and your family. Good call on replacing the through-hull fittings.
Post pics when you can. We love to watch other people work. :-)
