Newbie to Forum & Newbie Trawler Owner
I have just joined the forum and am looking forward to learning more about cruising on a trawler. My wife and I have just bought a 1993 - 34' Marine Trader (Aft Cabin). Prior to this boat we owned a 36' Nauticat Motorsailer for 10 years. The Nauticat was wonderful but the time had come for me to crawl down from the masts and experience life a little closer to the water's surface.
The "new" boat is currently berthed in Florida and this summer I will be sailing it to a marina close to my home in London, Ontario. Any advice offered about travelling north on the ICW, on to NYC & then up the Hudson & Erie Canal would be most welcome! I'm especially interested in advice regarding how much travel time I should plan for each segment of the journey.
