New'ish Member - now with a boat!

Hi, Figured its time I introduce myself.
I was around a bit last year getting info on bluewater trawlers but finally found and purchased one I am very happy with. Thanks for the replies and help last year.

I ended up with a Krogen 54 and couldn't be happier, some retrofit needed but overall a great boat and importantly for me, great headroom. She is my first larger boat however I have spent years cruising the PACNW in my youth so looking forward to getting back into it.


Thanks
Arthur

Name is Sea Bear, she will be up at Philbrooks for the next month then out and about. Super excited although going to take it slow as its a lot more boat than I'm use to, luckily I have a bunch of folks including my Dad who are super experienced and helping out.

Thats the plan, once I started in the 40+ range I figured why get something I would get 2footitis... Plus I have a 3 year old son so the size also adds a lot of safe area for him.

Sea Bear. Cool name.

If you're ever in Gardner Canal keep your eyes peeled for your boat's namesake...we saw a Grizzly make a 2K crossing in there once. It's back was still out of the water at the end of it, and it had no problem hauling itself up the steep, rocky, seaweed covered shoreline.
