Greetings all

I signed up a half-year ago but haven't posted before. I live in the Seattle area and bought a trawler about a half-year ago. Like many of you I'm an xsailor but got to that age where running around on deck became more difficult and less prudent. Plus, living in the NW, the idea of a warm, dry pilothouse sounded wonderful when compared to driving in cold rain. Favorite cruising ground is SE Alaska and I hope to get up there, maybe this summer. We spent a summer there in our sailboat and had a wonderful time.

The Trawler Forum is great. My thanks to the founder.

Allan

Welcome. We are in Seattle as well. I grew up sailing off cape cod MA but nothing beats cruising the PNW. So much to see!
