Our first Trawler

Howdy,

I've been a member for a little while now and have enjoyed using the forum and getting to know you fine folks.

On Tuesday my wife and I just closed on our first trawler! We are so excited!

Our plans are to cruise during the summer months while we have time off from work.

We have 4 kids and a dog.

Our new boat is a 1982 Monk 40' located in Jacksonville FL.

Let the adventures begin! More pics to come!

-Perry

Also I want to attest to what a fine guy Bill Gladding is. But you folks already knew that. He was awesome to work with in the process of surveying.

Thanks for all the love everybody! We're pretty thrilled!

Timb that pic of the aft cabin must be a weird angle. That bed is definitely a double.

We'll for sure post up pics of our adventures. We're even thinking of trying our hand at a youtube channel. Yikes!

I took quite a few videos of the experience of taking my bride and kiddos down to see the boat for the first time, the sea trial and haul out. I'm working on editing them and will soon learn how to post to you tube.

It was a great few days. The owners even let us stay on the boat while we were there. WOW! It's been great to get to know them through the process of the sale.

Thanks again for all the compliments. Oh and I almost forgot... siestakey we'll probably land in Little River, SC. Not for sure though. My in-laws have a place there so it would be fun to be nearby. I also know those waters a little bit from spending time fishing there for the last few years.

Peace!
Perry

Perry - Real nice Monk design! What's your beam and draft?

Your "New" boat design from Monk Sr., or Monk Jr., or both working together?? Sr. was designer of most Tollycraft. Both Sr. and Jr. worked great as a team as well as with with "Mr. Tolly".

Yours looks super well laid out. Our 34" Tolly is the most roomy 34' I've ever experienced.
