Ahoy, my name is Chuck and received a link to this site from a fellow boater and have been following for several months and finally had to the nerve to join. Computers/technology is not always my friend so bear with me. I have a Sabre 48 express cruiser used primarily in CA but just finished 6 months in Baja, Mexico. As a result of this time, I am looking into a larger, cruiser/trawler type boat. Will be asking a lot of questions as I begin my boat search.

Welcome aboard! Whatever you do, don’t ask about anchors. You will start an argument that never ends.

Sorry Hopcar - there is no argument about anchors - Corky - get yourself a Rocna and you will always be safe.
