Hi all,

I've been lurking for a while soaking up all the knowledge - thank you! My wife and I live in Pensacola, FL, and currently just have a 22' bay boat, but a trawler is in the plans. No rush, would like to find the right one. We're on the water if anyone ever wants to tie up for a night or two!

Welcome aboard. No need to use the word "just" when describing your vessel ("...just have a 22' bay boat...). The vast majority of the crew here are pretty non-judgmental (except for the anchor wankers).

Welcome panhandler... as a person aboard a 23' trawler, may I saw "welcome" as well?

And I like my boat a lot, just the size she is.
Janice aboard Seaweed, living the good life afloat...

Welcome aboard. Nice to have you with us. Pensacola is a good place to have a boat -- also the place where I was born and half-raised.

Welcome to TF. I agree, no need to use the word "just". A boat is a boat, whatever the size is. Only matters the big pleasure to be on the water. :-)
