Our Journey- new North Pacific 45

After many years of TrawlerFests, boat shows, Loop seminars, reading PassageMaker/books,Blogs,TrawlerForum, YachtWorld, Google searches, walking docks, talking to fellow boaters/brokers, facing life's unexpected twists/turns, and dreaming--- we have decided to buy a new North Pacific 45!

My wife and I would like to share our experience so far and along the rest of the way through commissioning and delivery.

I would like to say that we have benefited tremendously by the threads and discussions on this Forum and have enjoyed when others have shared their journey and the responses/comments from TrawlerForum members.

So, to start we have attached a couple of photo's to begin. Lots more to come.

Congratulations! When we did the video boat review of the NP45 I was impressed with the boat and all the little design touches. Where will you cruise her?

To start it will be the West coast of Florida including the Keys- after some breaking in we will do Bahamas, Loop and if we have time take it around through Panama Canal all the way up to Inside Passage- many years to do this of course
