I will be closing on my new (to me) 1985 Tradewinds 47.

The boat is in Hilton Head now and I will be heading down to Florida as soon as I close and the refit is done.
Welcome to the forum, but Don, you have me confused. I've taken on board the above, (highlighted), so why is there a Camano Troll in your avatar...just askin'..?

Ok, sorry, just caught up with the fact this was an old thread re-visited. I get it now, ignore the above please. My bad, as they say - whoever 'they' are..?

The confusing thing is when an avatar pic is updated, it changes on all that member's posts, as far back as they go. Ideally it should only change from when the change is made. Maybe we need to look into the software on that..?

Amen to less can be better. A 30-foot glass boat over a 42-foot woodie was a phenomenal change for me. How does your Troll compare in roominess to the old sailboat you had?
