New to Trawlering

Hi all,

I just bought the handsome Ebbtide, custom Grand Banks 32 woody, from TF vetran Bob Cofer.

I look forward to learning more about Grand Banks and trawlers and Ford Lehman diesels and single screws.

I can share my experience living aboard with kids in Everett WA, on a classic Chris Craft Connie (no not a trawler) which was my former boat. Now I'm an empty nester and downsized, with plans of more cruising the Puget Sound than I could on the big gas guzzeling 'houseboat', that required much housecleaning to go out, without dumping all our possessions on the cabin floors.

Ebbtide is currently in Bellingham WA, but will eventually head south to Seattle, where I work in forensics.

Best wishes,

Mark

A part of your GB 32

Last week I have been invited to my friend's who was my current boat's first owner. A while back he purchased from Mr Bob Cofer the Ebbtide's upper helm what is at present hold as a nice decorative piece in his office in Southern France. May you have fair winds and following seas, Sir.
