New member intro

Hi Trawler Forum Folks,

I am a perspective buyer of a trawler and hopefully a Grand Banks 52. Looking forward to learning from this group.

Do you have a particular boat in mind?

I am lookingat a Grand Banks 52 but open to suggestions. I hope to find something with relatively low hours.

Welcome aboard!
If you read this forum youíll realize that your anchor choice is more important than your choice of boat. I suggest you pick your anchor first and let The Trawler Forum guide you to a matching boat. Unfortunately there is no anchor big enough for a 52 Grand Banks.

Rubbish. A 75# CQR is fine for the job!
